Before the tragic 1966 Atlanta Games bombing, Richard Jewell would have been your average Joe. After his bravery at the Olympic games people should be celebrating his name, but thanks to those in power his name was dragged through mud.
Next month Clint Eastwood‘s true story drama Richard Jewell will be released on DVD. Paul Walter Hauser plays our titular hero and what a performance. Warner Bros Pictures have sent us this awesome little Behind The Scenes Featurette, which the cast and crew discuss The Real Story of Richard Jewell...
“There is a bomb in Centennial Park. You have thirty minutes.” The world is first introduced to Richard Jewell as the security guard who reports finding the device at the 1996 Atlanta bombing—his report making him a hero whose swift actions save countless lives. But within days, the law enforcement wannabe becomes the FBI’s number one suspect, vilified by press and public alike, his life ripped apart. Reaching out to independent, anti-establishment attorney Watson Bryant, Jewell staunchly professes his innocence. But Bryant finds he is out of his depth as he fights the combined powers of the FBI, GBI and APD to clear his client’s name, while keeping Richard from trusting the very people trying to destroy him.
The film also stars Sam Rockwell ,Kathy Bates, Jon Hamm ,and Olivia Wilde.
Richard Jewell is available now on Digital HD and on DVD from 8th June.
