Gil Bellows and Austin Nichols have rounded out the ensemble cast of the Tom Hanks-produced JFK-assassination drama film Parkland.

Journalist-turned-screenwriter Peter Landesman, the writer and director of Parkland has been blessed with a marvelous cast including Paul Giamatti, Billy Bob Thorton, Zac Efron and Marcia Gay Harden, as well as an indie darling Mark Duplass who has recently booked a role of campaign advisor and friend to John F. Kennedy, Kenny O’Donnell.

Parkland will ‘look inside the Parkland hospital — which housed John F. Kennedy, Lee Harvey Oswald, and, years later, Jack Ruby as they all perished — on November 22nd, 1963 as their workers and members of the President’s staff dealt with the chaos of that day.’

In order to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the 35th president’s death, producers are eyeing the U.S. theatrical release later this year.
