Rockwell as Attorney in 'Ballad of Jewell'

Thursday, June 13, 2019

Academy Award winning actor Sam Rockwell is in talks to star in Clint Eastwood's upcoming drama "The Ballad of Richard Jewell". Rockwell will essay the role of a Defense Attorney in the film.

Eastwood is also producing through his Malpaso production banner.

The film is based on a a real-life security guard whose world turned upside down after law enforcement leaked to an overenthusiastic reporter at the Atlanta Journal Constitution that Jewell was a possible suspect for the pipe-bombing at Centennial Park during the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.

From that moment on, Jewell went from a hero, who discovered the suspicious abandoned backpack and saved hundreds of lives, to one of the most hated men in the US.

Rockwell will play the attorney who defends Jewell after he is wrongly accused.

Casting for the role of Jewell has not been announced yet.

Jonah Hill and DiCaprio were originally attached to star, but they will no longer feature in the film. Their involvement will be limited to producing the project.
