Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill proved a memorable duo in the 2013 dramedy The Wolf of Wall Street, epitomizing the raging ids of two brokers who learned how to game the system.

Now, the actors are set to re-team for a far different project, one recalling how an innocent man was accused of being the mastermind behind the 1996 Olympic bombing in Atlanta.

Hill will play Jewell, a security guard first branded a hero and then quickly cast as a suspect in the horrific blast that killed one woman and injured 111 people at Centennial Olympic Park. DiCaprio will co-star as Jewell’s lawyer.

Jewell was able to clear his name, but years later he battled diabetes and in 2007 died at the age of 44.
