Having both candidates were shortlisted for Oscar nominations for their amazing partnership in The Wolf Of Wall Street, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill are all set to team-up again on a new biopic for Fox.
Deadline reports that both Leonardo and Jonah have both signed on to star in an adaptation of the story of Richard Jewell, the man falsely accused of bombing the Atlanta Olympics back in 1996.
The film will be adapted from Marie Brenner’s Vanity Fair article entitled The Ballad Of Richard Jewell, which charts how Jewell was initially hailed as a hero for recovering a backpack bomb at the event, before falling under the finger of suspicion…
Hill will star as Jewell, while DiCaprio will play his lawyer friend who helped steer him through the ensuing legal nightmare.
No director or screenwriter has been appointed as yet, so we have no idea when this will be released, but we know we are excited as their on screen chemistry throughout Wolf of Wall Street was the driving force behind the characters progression of crazy antics throughout the storyline.
