Is the Hanks/Paxton/Bugliosi movie dead?


Recommended Posts

I doubt he's been scarred off. If it's still green lit I suspect it's been moved or renamed project X and is now undercover with some phony named production company in an attempt to keep it hidden from the likes of us.

FWIW:

I believe I saw something about Scorcese working on a mafia movie based upon another mafia-did-it book (I Heard You Paint Houses.) Is this one going through as well?

If so, I'm not so sure it's a bad thing. Maybe these movies will inspire some "journalists" to take a closer look at what really happened, and convince some youngsters that the assassination is relevant after all.

Thanks, David. That article pretty much confirms that the original concept of an 8 or 9 part mini-series with a supportive documentary featuring Bugliosi is dead, and MIGHT be replaced by a multi-part documentary regurgitating the evidence already presented on TV ad nauseum. So why pay Bugliosi a PENNY for the rights to his book? I mean, the evidence in his book was taken almost entirely from the Warren Report.

P.S. WHERE in the world does Paxton get this idea that the evidence against Oswald has never been presented to the public? Apparently, he has never seen the mock trial, or the mini-series on the trial of Oswald. Or the Discovery Channel programs. Oh well.

That email address for Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't work.

Perhaps they could not agree on the final scene !. Bus,Taxi or Rambler ?.

And I guess he's also forgotten (or doesn't know about) the best documentary film ever made about the JFK case -- David Wolper's 1964 lone-assassin feature motion picture, "Four Days In November". Any filmmaker or documentary producer would be hard-pressed to top Mr. Wolper's film.
