When a relationship works, why change it?
"The Wolf of Wall Street's" Jonah Hill and Leonardo DiCaprio are getting back in business together with a new movie again based on real events.
The filmmaking duo are going to take on the story of Richard Jewell, the security guard who went from national treasure to a top suspect in the 1996 Summer Olympics bombing. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Hill would portray Jewell with DiCaprio playing Jewell's attorney.
Studio 20th Century Fox has acquired the rights to Vanity Fair's 1997 profile of Jewell's saga, written by Marie Brenner, with Hill and DiCaprio serving as producers alongside Jennifer Davisson Killoran and Kevin Misher.
The project is probably a no-brainer for everyone involved, considering the accolades that have poured in following "Wolf's" release last month. Since its arrival on Christmas Day, it's not only racked up awards acclaim but also $104 million domestically.
