We already shared some stills from the upcoming Parkland movie, now it’s time to add a brand new poster to our little gallery. The JFK assassination as we’ve never seen it before? We’ll see about that, but one thing is for sure – Peter Landesman‘s drama definitely has an awesome cast on board and deserves our full attention. Head inside to take a look!
Written and directed by Landesman, the movie follows the events that occurred at Parkland Memorial Hospital after the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963.
As for the above mentioned awesome cast, 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 and Tom Welling.
The movie is based on the book Four Days In November, by renowned author and former prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi, and:
…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 scheduled to be shown in the main competition section of the 70th Venice International Film Festival and then is set to hit theaters on September 20th, 2013 (to coincide with the upcoming 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination).
