JFK Assassination Movie Forthcoming

"Parkland," co-produced by Tom Hanks, will mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F Kennedy.

From a story in the Guardian...

Titled Parkland after the Dallas hospital in which Kennedy, his assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, and Jack Ruby (who killed Oswald) all passed their final hours, the film will be shot in nearby Austin. It is aiming for a 2013 release to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the former US president's death in November 1963.

The script is based on the book Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F Kennedy, by the Edgar award-winning author and former prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi. Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman are among the producers for a project that will be shopped to buyers at the annual American Film Market in Santa Monica next week.
