Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill in 'The Wolf of Wall Street'

It looks like "The Wolf of Wall Street" stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill have another fact-based collaboration in the works. Per Deadline, 20th Century Fox has inked a deal to acquire rights to Marie Brenner's 1997 Vanity Fair article "The Ballad Of Richard Jewell" right in time for the Winter Olympics.

The article investigates the eponymous 1996 Atlanta Olympics security guard who, after discovering a suspicious backpack on the grounds, infamously became the scapegoat of a legal rigamarole. The role is being developed for Jonah Hill, says Deadline, and Leonardo DiCaprio will player the Southern litigator who came to Jewell's aid. 

Vanity Fair writer Marie Brenner's "The Man Who Knew Too Much" was the inspiration for Michael Mann's Oscar-nominated whistleblower thriller "The Insider" (1999), set in the tobacco industry. Both Jonah Hill and Leonardo DiCaprio are up for acting Oscars for Martin Scorsese's best picture contender "The Wolf of Wall Street."
