Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill have secured Oscar-nominated screenwriter Billy Ray (“Captain Phillips”) to pen their recently-announced project “The Balad of Richard Jewell”, reports Variety.
The real-life drama is based on Marie Brenner’s article in Vanity Fair which details the actions of a security guard at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games.
The security guard, Richard Jewel, discovers a knapsack bomb and helps to clear bystanders, only to become a suspect in the case.
The film will reunite “Wolf of Wall Street” stars Jonah Hill, who will play Jewel, and Leonardo DiCaprio, who will play Jewel’s attorney.
