Jonah Hill as Jerry Garcia – The Hollywood Reporter

Jonah Hill will play Jerry Garcia in Martin Scorsese’s Grateful Dead.

The project is set up at Apple, where Scorsese is currently working on his next feature The Killers of the Flower Moon, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. This will also be the reunion of the director and actors, who previously worked together The Wolf of Wall Street. Hill and Scorsese, the latter of whom had their first deal with the tech giant under its Sikelia Productions banner, will both produce the film.

Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, the writers behind biographical work like Dolemite is my Name and Big eyes, wrote the script about the infamous jam band. Apple bought the rights to use the Grateful Dead soundtrack in the movie.

Grateful Dead CEO Scorsese produced a 2017 documentary about the band, Strange long trip.

Rick Yorn will also produce, with Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Trixie Garcia, Eric Eisner and Bernie Cahill executive producing.

More will come.
