Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill Will Team Up Again for a '96 Olympic Bombing Movie
For those who don't remember, Jewell was a security guard who found a backpack full of explosives and alerted police, potentially saving dozens of lives during the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. However, Jewell's fame quickly soured into infamy, as he became a suspect and was tried by a media who was quick to judge.
Hill will play Jewell, who died in 2007, and DiCaprio will play his unorthodox lawyer and friend who helped exonerate Jewell.
The film is based on a 1997 Vanity Fair article, "The Ballad of Richard Jewell," written by Marie Brenner.
Another round of Oscar nominations for everybody!
