Jonah Hill in talks for ‘Wolf of Wall Street’

Would join Leonardo DiCaprio in Scorsese pic

Jonah Hill is in negotiations to co-star with Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” which Martin Scorsese will direct.

Red Granite is financing and will produce along with Scorsese and his production head Emma Tillinger Koskoff; other producers include Irwin Winkler; DiCaprio and his Appian Way partner Jennifer Killoran; and Alexandra Milchan.

Pic is based on Jordan Belfort’s memoirs, which chronicle his rise and fall on Wall Street, along with his hard-partying lifestyle and tumultuous personal life; Hill would play Belfort’s best friend and partner in crime who becomes addicted to cocaine. Terence Winter wrote the screenplay.

Though he has made a name for himself with his comedic performances, Hill has begun taking aim at more dramatic roles.

Hill received several accolades for his perf in Sony’s “Moneyball,” including an Oscar nom for supporting actor. After receiving the Oscar nomination, Hill told Variety that while he still loved working in comedies, he wanted to start looking for more dramatic roles after having such a great time doing “Moneyball.”

Prior to getting this role, Hill also joined the drama “True Story” with James Franco.

The WME-repped Hill was most recently seen in Sony’s “21 Jump Street” and can be seen next in Fox’s “The Watch.”
