Clint Eastwood's Richard Jewell Adds Another Actors Showcase

But in the days following the deed, Jewell emerged as the prime suspect, with both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the media zeroing in on him.

Now 23 years later, director Clint Eastwood is taking on the story of the fearless security guard in Richard Jewell, a drama centered around the aftermath of the bombing and Jewell's uphill defense of his innocence against the USA government and the media.

"Jewell fits the profile of a lone-bomber: a frustrated white man who is a police wannabe who seeks to become a hero", she says. The trailer for Clint Eastwood's Richard Jewell efficiently recaps the true-life story of a man whose life was ruined when law enforcement - and the press - got its story wrong and blamed an innocent man for a heinous crime.

Warner Bros. Pictures Presents a Malpaso Production, an Appian Way/Misher Films/75 Year Plan Production, "Richard Jewell". And what a trailer it is. The government is represented in the film by Jon Hamm's federal agent Tom Shaw, who has his eye on Jewell (played by Paul Walter Hauser) right away.

"I report the facts..."

The real-life story of Richard Jewell played out in the media and attracted a lot of attention.

But perhaps I'm being harsh, and perhaps Richard Jewell will turn out to be a great new addition to the Eastwood canon. Sam Rockwell plays the lawyer who represented Jewell, Jon Hamm is on board as an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, and Kathy Bates is portraying Jewell's mother, Bobi.

"Richard Jewell", written by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Billy Ray ("Captain Phillips") is slated to premiere in theaters on December 13. "You have 30 minutes", Jewell repeats several times at the requests of the interviewing Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, who claim the repetition is "to clear your name". Reaching out to independent, anti-establishment attorney Watson Bryant, Jewell staunchly professes his innocence. In my memory, there were three big news nightmares in the 1990s: OJ Simpson, Richard Jewell, and Bill Clinton's impeachment. But Bryant finds he is out of his depth as he fights the combined powers of the FBI, GBI and APD to clear his client's name, while keeping Richard from trusting the very people trying to destroy him.
