Chris Pine, Captain Kirk in the Kelvin Timeline, will take on the role of legendary CBS news anchor Walter Cronkite in Newsflash.
Newsflash “recounts the events of Nov. 22, 1963, as television news stations raced to report the facts of President John F. Kennedy‘s assassination in Texas. Cronkite’s producer Don Hewitt, boss Jim Aubrey and young coworker Dan Rather are also characters in the movie.”
Newsflash was written by Ben Jacoby, and will be produced by Greg Silverman and Adam Kolbrenner.
Seth Rogen elected to direct the Halloween movie instead of playing Cronkite.
