Jonah Hill will join Leonardo DiCaprio on the set of Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street. This is reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
The project will be based on the memoirs of former financier Jordan Belfort. His book chronicles his ascent to the top of the financial Olympus, the fight against drug addiction, the passion for luxury, and the machinations that brought him to the dock in 1998.
After almost two years in federal prison, Belfort was released free and not only wrote a book, but also became a successful lecturer.
DiCaprio will play the main character, and Hill will get the role of his friend, who leaves the calm but low-profit furniture business to take up a risky game on the stock exchange.
