Nelson McCormick (Prom NightThe Stepfather) is directing the film and Kelly Masterson (Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead) has adapted the novel for television. Ridley Scott is executive producing the project for Scott Free Productions, alongside David W. Zucker, Mary Listo and Bill O’Reilly. Killing Kennedy is set to premiere globally in November to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination.
