Parkland, the latest JFK assassination film, announced it will be filming on-location in Austin, Texas. Parkland stars Zac Efron, Paul Giamatti, Marcia Gay Harden, and Billy Bob Thornton. The movie is named after Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, where John F. Kennedy, Lee Harvey Oswald, and Oswald’s killer, Jack Ruby, all died.
Director Peter Landseman is behind the camera, with Tom Hanks and Playtone Pictures partner Gary Goetzman producing. Parkland is scheduled for a 2013 release.
