The film has its premiere at TIFF, with a release date of September 20. It's adapted from author and former prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi's book "Reclaiming History: The Assassination of John F. Kennedy."

November of this year marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination. David Mamet also has a film in the works, "Blackbird," starring Cate Blanchett, a contemporary thriller centering on a woman who discovers her father played a role in the conspiracy. Meanwhile, David O. Russell is taking on "Legacy of Secrecy" from Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way banner, on a Mafia hitman (to be played by Robert De Niro) who confides to the FBI that he ordered the hit on Kennedy.
