Skip to comments.New Feature Film Planned as 'Answer to Oliver Stone's Fanciful 'JFK'

In marketing Oliver Stone's 1991 New Orleans-shot, Kennedy-assassination conspiracy theory "JFK," Warner Bros. referred to it as "the story that won't go away." Now, some 21 years later, another film company is doing its part to make sure that claim remains true.
The Los Angeles-based Atchity Entertainment, in partnership with the Florida-based Ramos & Sparks Group, announced plans today (April 16) for a feature film based on one insider's account of the Kennedy assassination. The production is described it as an "answer to Oliver Stone's fanciful 'JFK.'"
The new film will be based on the New York Times bestseller "The Kennedy Detail," written by former Secret Service agent Gerald Blaine - a former member of Kennedy's security detail -- with journalist Lisa McCubbin.
The book has already spawned a Discovery Channel documentary, also called "The Kennedy Detail," which was narrated by Martin Sheen and nominated last year for a News and Documentary Emmy in the long-form historical programming category.
For its part, Stone's 1991's "JFK" was based on a book by New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison who -- unsatisfied with the official line -- launched his own investigation into the assassination. Shooting for two months in town in summer 1991, "JFK" stands as one of highest-profile films to shoot in New Orleans prior to the state's 2002 adoption of filmmaking tax incentives.

It’ll be called “BHO”
The answer to everything Oliver Stone says or does should be SEA KELP!
"In the first hour, director James Lane and writer/producer Holland Vandennieuwenhof present ignored and censored info about the Oklahoma City bombing."
Sure all that's interesting but the real interest they are going to explain how to pronounce Vandennieuwenhof.
Sounds interesting. Now if the folks over at DU don't order C2C producers to cancel those guests it may be informative.
CoastToCoastAM often has JFK conspiracies as subjects as long as the folks at DU tell the producers of C2C that it is OK.
What's that about DU? They were bragging last week about how they got a "right wing" guest cancelled -- now I know why Dr. Jerome Corsi though a frequent guest is not allowed to talk about what he knows about Obama's past. DU -- through C2C staff -- won't let him.
like it or not “JFK” the movie is the closest you will ever get to the truth...especially the director’s cut
I would have just one question for this former member of JFK's security detail and that is why did they stand down and not ride with JFK on his limo and did not check the route for any open windows and obvious dangers.
Have you watched the Zapruder film?
You mean the one that clearly shows JFK’s head moving forward from frame 312 to 313?
The one that shows the pink mist of brain matter moving forward and spraying onto the forward part of the passenger compartment, before his head jerks back displaying the “jet effect?”
The one that shows Connally reacting to a gunshot, which created an oblong wound in his back, proving that A the shot came from behind and B that the bullet was tumbling before it struck him, in perfect accord with the single bullet “theory?” That one?
Have you seen the program on National Geographic that shows scanned and enhanced Zapruder footage, including the area outside the normal 8MM frame? The show where the recreation proves that the pattern of blood and gore on the limo indicates a shot from the rear? The show where a witness describes seeing a man in the sixth floor window of the Book Depository Building with a rifle?
The show where home movie footage shows a figure moving in the sixth floor window?
Have you seen that?
I haven’t seen all these pieces but will look into them.
I lived through this and remember it. Around these parts, everyone thought LBJ was behind it.
Will we see a scene of JFK pimping his 19 year old intern?
