The Venice Film Festival is already hosting an impressive number of films this year, including Gravity, Child of God, and The Zero Theorem. Peter Landesman will also be making his directorial debut during this year’s 70th Anniversary celebration with Parkland, a dramatic look at the immediate aftermath of President Kennedy’s assassination in 1963, after which he was rushed to Parkland Memorial Hospital. Landesman also wrote the screenplay for the movie, which is based on author Vincent Bugliosi’s book Four Days In November. Zac Efron, Paul Giamatti, Ron Livingston, Marcia Gay Harden, and Billy Bob Thornton all have roles in the film which is due out in the UK this November.
