Hill Joins DiCaprio & Scorsese’s “Wolf”

Jonah Hill is in negotiations to join Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s adaptation of the Jordan Belfort memoir “The Wolf of Wall Street” says The Hollywood Reporter.

DiCaprio plays a Long Island penny stock broker who served 20 months in prison for participating in a massive 1990’s securities fraud that involved widespread corruption on Wall Street and in the corporate banking world.

Hill would play his best friend and business partner Danny Porush, a furniture salesman who joined his meteoric rise and colossal fall. DiCaprio, Scorsese, Riza Aziz, Joey McFarland, Emma Koskoff and Alexandra Milchan are producing.
