Peter Lanesman’s newest film, “Parkland,” will tell the story of the JFK assassination we’ve never seen before.
“Parkland” will follow the events that happened at Parkland Memorial Hospital after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy back 1963. Check out the poster below and after the jump five stills. Also, the first trailer hits Monday, August 19th:
“Recounting the chaotic events that occurred in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, “Parkland” weaves together the perspectives of a handful of ordinary individuals suddenly thrust into extraordinary circumstances: the young doctors and nurses at Parkland Hospital; Dallas’ chief of the Secret Service; an unwitting cameraman who captured what became the most watched and examined film in history; the FBI agents who nearly had the gunman within their grasp; the brother of Lee Harvey Oswald, left to deal with his shattered family; and JFK’s security team, witnesses to both the president’s death and Vice President Lyndon Johnson’s rise to power over a nation whose innocence was forever altered.
“Parkland” is based on the book “Four Days In November,” by renowned author and former prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi.”
“Parkland,” which is written/directed by Peter Landesman, hits (limited) theaters September 20th, 2013, and stars Zac Efron, Marcia Gay Harden, Billy Bob Thornton, Jacki Weaver, Paul Giamatti, James Badge Dale, Jackie Earle Haley, Colin Hanks, David Harbour, Ron Livingston, Jeremy Strong, and Tom Welling.
