Los Angeles: After working together in The Wolf of Wall Street, actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill are again teaming up for a movie based on a true story of a man falsely blamed for a bombing at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.

DiCaprio will also produce the movie adaptation with his partner Jennifer Davisson Killoran, Hill and Kevin Misher.

Jewell was working as a security guard at the 1996 Summer Games when he discovered a backpack containing pipe bombs, subsequently sounding the alarm and helping to clear the area. However, the bomb detonated, killing one person and injuring dozens of others.

Initially hailed as a hero, Jewell was soon the prime suspect, as the FBI searched his home twice. He was later cleared of all charges.

The yet untitled project is still in development.
