Jonah Hill will star as the real-life Richard Jewell, the security guard who discovered a backpack bomb during the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta but was wrongly accused of being the terrorist. Leonardo DiCaprio plays his lawyer. Billy Ray adapted the script from a Vanity Fair article by Marie Brenner. Hill is set to play Jewell, the Atlanta Olympics security guard who spotted a suspicious backpack that turned out to contain a bomb. He minimized the damage and saved countless bystanders with his quick thinking and brave actions, and was initially hailed in the press as a hero.

Director Clint Eastwood has been eyeing the reins for this film. In addition to starring, DiCaprio will produce through Appian Way alongside Jennifer Davisson Killoran. Hill, Kevin Misher, and Andy Berman will produce as well.

No start date or release date has been announced. But look for this one to move quickly, especially if the famously efficient Eastwood climbs aboard.

Leonardo DiCaprio plays famous novelist Peter Chancellor in the Paramount thriller The Chancellor Manuscript. Peter Chancellor wrote a story about D.C. power brokers who are blackmailed into changing U.S. foreign policy. When some operatives get a hold of the manuscript and realize that their scheme has been discovered, they come after the novelist. The film is an adaptation of the Robert Ludlum political thriller

 

3. Brave New World

Phase: Development
Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio
Director: Ridley Scott
Expected release date: Unknown
Also Starring: Unknown

This movie looks particularly awesome. Ridley Scott and Leonardo DiCaprio are set to take on Aldous Huxley’s 1932 ground-breaking novel Brave New World. The Huxley estate finally agreed to a feature adaptation of the late author’s most well-known book. DiCaprio plays the lead character, John the Savage, in a future dystopia where all forms of human expression have been eliminated to achieve social stability.

There’s already been a few adaptations of the famous Huxley Novel. First was the Brave New World 1980 film, as well as the 1998 television movie starring Peter Gallagher and Leonard Nimoy.

As great as this sounds, Ridley Scott himself was not too optimistic in getting this movie done. Back in 2012 he was quoted saying:

“I don’t know what to do with Brave New World. It’s tough. I think Brave New World in a funny kind of way was good in nineteen thirty-eight, because it had a very interesting revolutionary idea. Don’t forget it came shortly before or after George Orwell, roughly the same time. When you re-analyze it, maybe it should stay as a book. I don’t know. We tried to get it…”

5. The Crowded Room

Phase: Development
Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio
Director: Unknown
Expected release date: Unknown
Also Starring: Unknown

Leonardo DiCaprio is attached to star in The Crowded Room about the real-life Billy Milligan, who had 24 personalities and claimed one of them committed crimes without his knowledge. He was the first to use this insanity defense. Jason Smilovic and Todd Katzberg adapted the screenplay from the nonfiction book by Daniel Keyes.
Out of control of his own actions, Billy Milligan was a man tormented by twenty-four distinct personalities battling for supremacy over his body — a battle that culminated when he awoke in jail, arrested for the kidnap and rape of three women. In a landmark trial, Billy was acquitted of his crimes by reason of insanity caused by multiple personality — the first such decision in history — bringing to public light the most remarkable and harrowing case of multiple personality ever recorded.

Twenty-four people live inside Billy Milligan.

6. The Devil in the White City

Leonardo DiCaprio reunites with director Martin Scorsese on The Devil in the White City. DiCaprio will play the real-life serial killer H.H. Holmes, who opened a hotel to murder people while Chicago hosted the 1893 World’s Columbian Expo. Billy Ray adapts the screenplay from the Erik Larson book.

Phase: Development
Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio
Director: Martin Scorsese
Expected release date: Unknown
Also Starring: Unknown

Published in 2003, The Devil in the White City is officially described by Crown Publishing as follows:

Their fates were linked by the magical Chicago World’s Fair of 1893, nicknamed the “White City” for its majestic beauty. Architect Daniel Burnham built it; serial killer Dr. H. H. Holmes used it to lure victims to his World’s Fair Hotel, designed for murder. Both men left behind them a powerful legacy, one of brilliance and energy, the other of sorrow and darkness.

Here, then, is your ticket to the greatest fair in history—a place where incredible dreams came to life alongside darkest nightmares.

DiCaprio will take on the part of the homicidal Mr. Holmes.

“I think that a guy who is that intelligent and that charismatic is nothing less than complex, and it’s that complexity that (DiCaprio) is drawn to,” said DiCaprio’s producing partner Jennifer Killoran of the project a few years back. “And because people don’t know much about him, it makes it even more interesting.”

Scorsese and DiCaprio first teamed on Gangs of New York in 2002, followed by The Aviator in 2004, The Departed in 2006, Shutter Island in 2010 and The Wolf of Wall Street in 2013. DiCaprio next headlines Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant, set for release December 25. Scorsese’s latest, Silence, is, meanwhile, still without a release date. Also hailing from Paramount, it stars Andrew Garfield, Ken Watanabe and Liam Neeson.
