After their great comedy double act in The Wolf of Wall Street, Jonah Hill and are set to be reunited on-screen, albeit this time in more serious roles.
Fox has acquired the rights to 's 1997 Vanity fair article, The Ballad of Richard Jewel, and plan to cast the pair. This time however, it will be taking the lead, with DiCaprio supporting.
Brenner's article focused on Richard Jewell, a security guard at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics who had his life ripped apart after he found a bag containing a bomb while on duty and turned it in. He was then falsely accused of planting the bomb, and was subjected to intense media scrutiny. At the height of this, he had as many as 10,000 reporters camped outside the home he shared with his mother.
This would not be the first of Brenner's articles to be adapted for the big screen, as her story on the tobacco industry was the basis for the 1999 and film, The Insider.
Will the duo struggle in these more serious roles, or will their on-screen rapport make this another film to remember? Let us know what you think.
