Just saw an ad for this film, due for wide release on December 13. It looked really good.
As a director, I think Clint has a wonderful feel for this kind of material-- a real life case of an innocent security guard, alerting authorities to the presence of a bomb during the Olympics, and then being famously turned into a suspect by the FBI, and vilified by the press.
Glad he ultimately got vindication, and a probing, no-holds-barred movie treatment by a top director can only make that all the sweeter...

I wonder if Richard Jewell's estate will receive a royalty, or cut of some sort, from this film. It seems like it should. He died in 2007 at age 44.

He was vindicated but that didn't make nearly as much news as the charges that were brought against him.
I've read some about him and the way he was treated was just terrible. Shameful.

I'm thinking that the timeless themes of injustice, shallow assumptions, stereotyping and human drama represented by this case could benefit from the exposure and depth of clarity that a Clint Eastwood-directed film could give. Anticipating excellence!

I can't wait to see this movie. We went to the Atlanta Olympics. The bombing happened hours before we got there. And the park reopened during our visit. So we went to the Park the morning it reopened. Not sure if there was a ceremony reopening the Park. Jesse Jackson was there with a group.
So sad Richard Jewell is no longer around. And yes the press was brutal.

I don't think this is "old" news to his widow, Dana Jewell.
The city of Atlanta does not consider it "old" news either.
Richard Jewell will be honored for his heroic actions early next year.
