In an effort to ensure that history classes in high schools the nation over always have something to do when their teachers are too hungover to teach, Tom Hanks is going back into the historical drama fire with Parkland, a feature drama named after the hospital that treated both mortally wounded Lee Harvey Oswald, and the mortally wounded president.

The film will focus on people on the periphery of the national tragedy, like Abraham Zapruder, secret service agents, and the doctors involved. Nothing is mentioned of Hanks stepping in front of the camera, though I think he would make a very solemn and respectful Jackie O.

Hanks has demonstrated a recurring interest in breathing life to historical drama from the golden years of American history, having dabbled in astronauts, WWII, and now the Kennedy assassination, just like I did when I was 12 years old.

DiCaprio Will Snitch In JFK Assassination Story ‘Legacy Of Secrecy’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/dicaprio-will-snitch-in-jfk-assassination-story-legacy-of-secrecy/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/dicaprio-will-snitch-in-jfk-assassination-story-legacy-of-secrecy/#comments Mon, 22 Nov 2010 18:14:37 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=8925 Being one of the biggest stars in the world has afforded Leonardo DiCaprio the artistic freedom to create any project that he wants (and bang models). He's using that power (not the model-banging one) to bore the crap out of us with another story centered around the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Being one of the biggest stars in the world has afforded Leonardo DiCaprio the artistic freedom to create any project that he wants (and bang models). He’s using that power (not the model-banging one) to bore the crap out of us with another story centered around the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Leo will produce and star in Legacy Of Secrecy. In the film, he’ll star as an informant assigned to cozy up to mob boss Carlos Marcello, and solicit a confession from him that he gave the order to murder the president. Incidentally, the assassination took place 47 years ago today. The president’s murder is SO hot right now. You stay classy, Hollywood. (Variety)
