Yes, the two talented actors will star together in a movie about Atlanta Olympics bombing
Leonardo DiCaprio said that he and Jonah Hill are ready to team up once again to tell the story of 1996 Olympics security guard Richard Jewell.
Hill is going to star as Jewell in the planned film, which was presented to the two actors while they searched for another joint project following the success of The Wolf of Wall Street.
He said that in his opinion it was a heartbreaking story about a man becoming a hero and then the world’s biggest villain within 24 hours of each other – and then dying before he got to see his name cleared, reported a news channel.
DiCaprio is believed to both produce and play Jewell’s attorney.
Jewell had initially been hailed a hero for finding a suspicious looking backpack and evacuating people out of harm’s way just before a bomb exploded in the Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, killing one and injuring 111 others.
But within days of the blast, he was named as a suspect in the blast. He was eventually cleared but died in 2007 at age 44.
