Tom Hanks is cranking his nostalgia-a-tron to produce a movie about JFK. According to Variety, Parkland (named after the hospital where both Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald died) will be an ensemble drama whose characters include Abraham Zapruder, Oswald's family members, and the staff of the hospital. We've said it before and we'll say it again: Eventually, Tom Hanks will have chronicled every important event in American history. You're next, Watergate!
