Remember Parkland? In case you forgot, we’re talking about Peter Landesman‘s upcoming drama which has an awesome cast on board, and follows the events that occurred at Parkland Memorial Hospital after the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963. We finally have the very first (official) pics to share, and as usual – we definitely recommend you to take a look!
Written and directed by Landesman, the movie 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, Tom Welling, and is set to hit limited theaters on September 10th, 2013.
Before that, Parkland is scheduled to be shown in the main competition section of the 70th Venice International Film Festival and at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival as well.
Described as the chaotic drama, the movie is based on the book Four Days In November, by renowned author and former prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi.
In case you’ve missed the official synopsis:
Recounting the chaotic events that occurred in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, the film 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.
