Last week, we reported that Olivia Wilde had responded to some of Richard Jewell's criticisms of Clint Eastwood saying that much of the backlash against her character was based on a sexist refusal to accept female characters that are not necessarily meant to be nice. Arriving in theaters on Friday, December 13, the film, which now boasts an 83% Tomatometer score on Rotten Tomatoes, is based on the true story of security guard Richard Jewell (portrayed by Paul Walter Hauser), who went from American hero to wrongfully accused terrorist after becoming the FBI's number one suspect in the 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing. As a result, the security guard became one of the most persecuted people in America overnight.
Newspaper bosses at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution are unhappy with the way their journalists, especially Kathy Scruggs, are portrayed in the film.
A letter from the newspaper's attorneys, which was sent to Eastwood and Warner Bros. on Monday, declared, "It is highly ironic that a film purporting to tell a tragic story of how the reputation of an Federal Bureau of Investigation suspect was grievously tarnished appears bent on a path to severely tarnish the reputation of the AJC, a newspaper with a respected 150-year-old publishing legacy".
"The Richard Jewell film falsely portrays the AJC and its personnel as extraordinarily reckless, using unprofessional and highly inappropriate reporting methods, and engaging in constitutional malice by recklessly disregarding information inconsistent with its planned reporting", the letter proclaimed.
"This, too, is the height of irony, since all those involved in the film's creation and dissemination and its false portrayal of the AJC are the ones who have acted recklessly and are engaging in constitutional malice".
The letter also warns that the next step would be "defamation lawsuit in various jurisdictions".
In addition to asking the producers of the film to issue a statement acknowledging that some of the depicted events were imagined, the AJC also wants a "prominent disclaimer" attached to the film itself.
