LOS ANGELES (AP) – Clint Eastwood’s film “Richard Jewell” is having its world premiere at the AFI Fest in Los Angeles in November.

The American Film Institute announced Tuesday that the film had been added to a lineup for its annual film festival.

Eastwood wrote and directed the film about the true story of the wrongly vilified security guard who went from hero to suspect after the 1996 Atlanta Olympic bombing that killed one woman. Paul Walter Hauser plays the title character. Sam Rockwell, Kathy Bates and Jon Hamm co-star.

Richard Jewell,” a Warner Bros. release, will open in theaters on Dec. 13.

The 2019 AFI Fest will open with the premiere of “Queen & Slim” on Nov. 14 and close with “The Banker” on Nov. 21.
