New JFK Assassination Films

17 Aug

As we approach the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination on November 22, 2013, two forthcoming films are expected to dramatize the historic event.

Parkland:  Tom Hanks, Producer
One of these films will reportedly be produced by famous actor Tom Hanks and titled Parkland.  Current speculation has it set entirely in Dallas, the site of President Kennedy’s murder.  Movie insiders say Parkland will document moments leading up to President Kennedy’s assassination and also focus on Abraham Zapruder, who filmed the most famous images of the event.

Parkland is said to explore the effect of President Kennedy’s assassination on a wide range of Dallas area citizens, including a doctor, an FBI agent, Secret Service agents, a reporter, members of President Kennedy’s staff, alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald’s brother, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy and amateur movie-maker Abraham Zapruder.

A Sequel to Oliver Stone’s Blockbuster ‘JFK?’

Director Oliver Stone is currently said to be in pre-production on what some have called a sequel to his popular film ‘JFK.’ The working title is ‘JFK: SECRETS NEVER KEEP.’ In the new controversial movie, Stone apparently does more than merely revisit territory covered in the first film.

Director Stone is recently quoted as saying “I haven’t fleshed it all out yet, but I am almost positive that this was how it all went down on November 22, 1963…”

Oliver Stone’s followup film on the JFK assassination is reportedly slated for a November, 2013 release.
