His health was also affected, and although he later became a police officer, he died in 2007 of a heart attack at age 44.
The project has been going on for several years by Hollywood and came to be thought for Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill, who will now have a role as producers.
The protagonist will be the little known Paul Walter Hauser, who had secondary roles in "I, Tonya" and "BlacKkKlansman: The Infiltrate."
Sam Rockwell, who won the Secondary Actor Oscar for "Three Posters Down the Road" (2017), will play the role of Jewell's defense lawyer. Already Kathy Bates, who has a golden statuette as Best Actress for "Misery" (1990), will play her mother, who was linked to the insurance industry.
