Via Deadline, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass will team up again to make a third Jason Bourne movie following concluding the trilogy with The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007. Universal has set the film for a quick production and a release on July 16, 2016. Not only that, this would place the as-of-yet untitled Bourne movie ahead of the Bourne spinoff sequel to The Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner and directed by Justin Lin (Fast & Furious).
Deadline mentions that Greengrass had originally planned on stopping the franchise now that Bourne has his memory back, saying there’s nowhere else for the character to go. But this latest update of course flies in the face of news that Greengrass would never make another Bourne movie, that Damon would never make one without Greengrass, and that Damon was anyway attached without Greengrass involved.
This will also be the first Damon/Bourne movie not based on one of Robert Ludlum’s novels, »

In the years that followed The Bourne Ultimatum, Matt Damon often said he would not return to make another Jason Bourne movie unless Paul Greengrass was back to direct. The actor revealed in May that he is still open to playing Jason Bourne again, although the actor and filmmaker could not come up with a story that interested them both.
While it isn't known who is writing this new version, the studio is so high on the idea that they plan on fast-tracking this untitled project into production, which would take the July 15, 2016 release date already given to director Justin Lin's Untitled Jason Bourne Sequel. That project is a follow-up to 2012's The Bourne Legacy which starred Jeremy Renner as another Treadstone agent, »
Exclusive: Jason Bourne is coming back. Universal Pictures has begun making deals with Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass to reunite for their third film in The Bourne Identity series, sources tell me. This is an absolute stunner — and Universal would not comment nor would the reps — because Greengrass told Deadline as recently as last year that once Bourne regained his memory, there was no place else for the character to go creatively. His search formed the spine for the trilogy Damon starred in.
Well, they’ve figured it out. I’m told that the studio is so bullish on this that the intention is to make the reteam the next Bourne film to go into production to make the July 16, 2016, release slot that Universal had previously assigned to an untitled Bourne film. That means it would step in front of the spinoff sequel that is to reprise Jeremy Renner »

Paul Greengrass is looking to diect Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill in a new film set up at Fox that tells the true story of a security guard named Richard Jewell. The movie is based on a 1997 Vanity Fair article by Marie Brenner called "The Ballad Of Richard Jewell."
Hill is playing Jewell, who was the security guard that discovered a backpack full of explosives in the Olympics compound at the 1996 Atlanta games. "Initially hailed a hero for reporting the suspicious knapsack and then helping clear bystanders from the area before it exploded, Jewell was subsequently vilified just three days later as a potential suspect, his life and reputation torn apart in the advent of the 24 hour news cycle."
Leonardo DiCaprio is set to play a lawyer described as "a Southern attorney who mostly did real estate closings and seemed in over his head, but he guided Jewell through a »

We’ve known since February that the fabled Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill bromance first seen in The Wolf of Wall Street would continue into a second film. We’ve also known who that film would be about: Richard Jewell, the security guard who saved the ’96 Olympics from a bomb threat and was wrongfully crucified for it. And now thanks to Deadline, we know who’s interested in directing it (“circling” the project, as they say): Paul Greengrass. Makes sense, given that the script is being handled by Captain Phillips writer Billy Ray. Right now, some outlets are referring to the pic as American Nightmare, but it’s not totally clear if that’s the official title or just something taken from the Vanity Fair expose this is all based off of, “American Nightmare: The Ballad of Richard Jewell.” Here’s a quick primer on just who this Richard Jewell guy was: the security guard »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Andrew Garfield admits he was surprised by the mixed critical reaction to The Amazing Spider-Man 2. He says he "loved" the script by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, but noted that portions of the story were cut from the film: "Certain people at the studio had problems with certain parts of it, and ultimately the studio is the final say in those movies." Garfield also said that he loves "constructive criticism" and wants to consider further "if we missed anything."

Back towards the beginning of the year, we learned that The Wolf of Wall Street stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill would team up again for The Ballad of Richard Jewell, a story based on a Vanity Fair article about the security guard who discovered an explosive laden backpack at the 1996 Olympics compound in Atlanta and cleared bystanders, only to be turned on when he was labeled a potential suspect three days after being called a hero. The film is set up at 20th Century Fox and now Deadline reports United 93 and The Bourne Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass is circling the director's chair. More below! The project would reteam Greengrass with his Captain Phillips screenwriter Billy Ray, who has already adapted the 1997 article by Marie Brenner, and would make for quite the Oscar contender when the time comes. As previously reported, Hill would play the lead role of Jewell »

After their huge critical and box-office acclaim opposite each other in The Wolf of Wall Street from Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill are set to re-team on American Nightmare: The Ballad of Richard Jewell, a film based on the life of Richard Jewell, a American security guard who became a suspect in the Olympic Park bombing.
Today, Deadline reports that the project may have found its director in the shape of Paul Greengrass (United 93, Captain Phillips). The siet suggests that Greengrass is circling the film, but no deal has been made as of yet.
Based on the Vanity Fair article of the same name by Marie Brenner, the film will feature Hill as Jewell, whose life is thrown into turmoil following allegations of his involvement in the disaster. DiCaprio, meanwhile, will play his lawyer. Jewell was eventually exonerated, but not at the expense of an investigation that, »

Deadline is reporting that Paul Greengrass, best known for his work taking the Bourne series to new heights after a so-so first film, is in talks to helm a movie that Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill have been looking to make for a while now. I reported several months ago that DiCaprio and Hill, fresh off their well-received onscreen pairing in The Wolf of Wall Street, were looking to work together again and had chosen the real-life story of disgraced security guard Richard Jewell as their next project.
The film will be based on an article from Vanity Fair called The Ballad of Richard Jewell and tells the sickening story of how Jewell, a security guard that helped quell a terrorist attack at the 1996 Olympic games in Atlanta, was turned into a prime suspect and object of ridicule by the news media despite being innocent. What happened to Jewell would »

Following their stellar performances in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, for which both were Oscar-nominated, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill are set to reteam for a biopic centering on Richard Jewell, a heroic security guard who spotted a knapsack bomb at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and cleared the area of bystanders before it exploded, only to find himself accused by the authorities of planting the bomb himself. And now, Deadline is reporting that Paul Greengrass, whose 2013 thriller Captain Phillips racked up six Oscar noms, is circling the project.
News that Greengrass could take the reins on the Richard Jewell pic is especially exciting given that Billy Ray, who penned Captain Phillips to great acclaim, is already set to scribe this film, working from Marie Brenner’s 1997 Vanity Fair article “American Nightmare: The Ballad of Richard Jewell.” Greengrass and Ray’s last collaboration was a true nail-biter, and »

With Bloody Sunday, United 93 and Captain Phillips, Paul Greengrass has won critical praise and Oscar accolades for turning real-life traumas into compelling dramas. So it's little wonder he's being eyed for the helm of the developing docudrama involving the 1996 Olympic Games. Deadline reports Paul Greengrass is currently considering taking the helm of the Jonah Hill/Leonardo DiCaprio vehicle The Ballad of Richard Jewell, which will unravel the disturbing tale of Richard Jewell, the American police officer who discovered a backpack filled with pipebombs at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia. Having made the discovery before anyone could be injured, Jewell was first hailed as a hero. But before long the media turned on him, accusing him of planting the bomb himself. Greengrass's experience in translating true dramas into compelling cinema makes him an excellent pick for The Ballad of Richard Jewell. Should he sign on, this docudrama will reteam him »
The movie is about Richard Jewell, the real-life security guard who found himself vilified as a possible terrorist after finding a suspicious backpack in the Olympics compound during the 1996 games in Atlanta. Though he managed to clear bystanders before the bomb exploded, Jewell was embroiled in a months long investigation which would see his name dragged through the mud despite his heroic actions.

After proving their comedic chemistry (with a tinge of drama) in Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill have found another excuse to work together again. Earlier this year they became attached to the 20th Century Fox film The Ballad of Richard Jewell. Based off Marie Brenner‘s 1997 article for Vanity Fair (read it […] »

The Captain Phillips director is in line for the project about the man who was falsely accused of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics bombing, reports Deadline.
The film will be based on Marie Brenner's 1997 Vanity Fair article 'The Ballad of Richard Jewell'.
Hill will play Jewell, with DiCaprio taking on the role of a southern attorney who befriends the beleaguered security guard.
Jewell was a security guard who discovered a suspicious backpack in the Olympics compound during the 1996 games in Atlanta. He soon was vilified as a potential terrorist.
The hope is for Hill to play Jewell and DiCaprio to play a Southern attorney who knew Jewell casually. The lawyer guided Jewell through the demoralizing media circus that followed. The FBI finally cleared Jewell three months later.
