Did You Know?
- Originally, this movie was to be directed by Paul Greengrass, but he dropped out to do Jason Bourne (2016). David O. Russell was eventually approached for the project, but a deal never developed. It would be two years until April 2015, Clint Eastwood began to circle the project as his follow up to Sully (2016), but Eastwood chose another in-development project, The 15:17 to Paris (2018), to helm instead. In December 2016, Ezra Edelman, an Academy Award winning documentary filmmaker signed on to helm the project for his first directorial narrative feature film, but dropped out in late 2018 after not getting it off the ground. In May 2019, Clint Eastwood signed back on to direct.

This movie was an eye opener how the media can quickly ruin an innocent citizens life over a unverified details it almost looks like what we see our news stations doing today except Twitter wasn’t born yet so the news and newspapers were more powerful back than glad this painted the truth Clint Eastwood will be busy making more of these keep it up sir
THE FBI IS CORRUPT AND THE MEDIA IS A WHORE.
More diverting is the increasingly desperate forensics the FBI resorts to in order to build a case against Jewell, though it’s not always clear which tactics are simply thorough, now outdated, or flagrantly illegal. But Richard Jewell has so little to say about its time period or how the culture has shifted that it ends up exposing the relative quaintness of its concerns.
It’s Hauser who carries the film in a rare and unlikely role, that of a presumed loser in life (the man did die just a few years later, at 44) who suffered very unwanted attention — but who, when he needed to, found a way to rise to the occasion.
Thankfully, Eastwood’s sure grasp of this inherently compelling story mostly overcomes his sentimental propensities.
