Jonah Hill and Leonardo DiCaprio are following up their performances in The Wolf of Wall Street with another team-up. Deadline reports that the actors will star in American Nightmare, the story of the security guard who was inaccurately accused of being behind the 1996 Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta.
The film will be based on Marie Brenner's Vanity Fair article "American Nightmare: The Ballad of Richard Jewell," with Hill playing Richard Jewell and DiCaprio playing his lawyer. Jewell's life is thrown into turmoil following allegations of his involvement in the incident and was was eventually exonerated, but not at the expense of an investigation that, for months, had the American public believing him a potential terrorist.
