Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill must have had a lot of fun tossing dwarves on the Wolf of Wall Street set because they are suddenly inseparable. Not only are they teaming up to produce a show about Q-Tip’s early career and hugging all up on one another on SNL, but today comes word that they will once again reunite onscreen to tell the story of Richard Jewell, the security guard wrongly accused by news outlets of being a terrorist involved in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics bombing.
This time, Hill will step into the lead for a more grounded depiction of Paul Blart while DiCaprio will play the real estate attorney who helped defend Jewell in the national terrorism case. Sounds like your typical Hollywood tale of a couple of plucky underdogs out to prove that they weren’t involved with mass murder. Bad News Bears Go To Trial all over again. (Deadline)
