Based on a real story. An American security guard name Richard Jewell (Paul Walter Hauser) saves thousands of lives when he raises the alarm after finding a bomb at the 1996 Olympics. Instead of being lauded as a hero, however, Jewell is vilified by the press as a potential terrorist. When he becomes the main suspect, Richard hires the lawyer Watson Bryant (Sam Rockwell) to defend him. Bryant believes the innocence of his client and is willing to face the FBI, GBI (Georgia Bureau of Investigation) and the Atlanta Police Department to prove it. 'Richard Jewell' is a drama directed and produced by Clint Eastwood ('Mule', 'Sully', 'American Sniper', 'Gran Torino'). The script is written by Bill Ray ('Terminator: Dark Fate', 'Gemini Man', 'Overlord') based on 'American Nightmare: The Ballad of Richard Jewell', a Vanity Fair article redacted by the investigative journalist Marie Brenner. The film features Paul Walter Hauser ('Cobra Kai', 'I, Tonya', 'BlacKkKlansman') as Richard Jewell with great list of movie stars: Sam Rockwell ('Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri', 'Iron Man 2', 'Jojo Rabbit'), Jon Hamm ('Mad Men', 'Baby Driver', 'Good Omens'), Olivia Wilde ('House', 'Tron Legacy') and Kathy Bates ('American Horror Story', 'Feud', 'Midnight in Paris').
