The nephew of the mob boss who allegedly ordered Kennedy’s assassination wrote a script for the mystery

The planned work will be presented by the Archlight production company at the Cannes International Film Festival.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning and Oscar-nominated screenplay for Assassination was written by David Mamet with Nicholas Celluzzi, and Mamet will also be in the director’s chair.

Mamet remembers the Kennedy assassination from a mob boss’s point of view.

According to the director’s concept, the Kennedy assassination was ordered by Chicago mob boss Sam Giancana, in retaliation for the fact that the president turned against him after his election, even though the mob supported his election.

Oliver Stone’s 1991 film JFK played an important role in the story of the Kennedy assassination.

Co-screenwriter Celluzzi is Giancana’s nephew. The film was directed by Academy Award winner Robert Elswet and produced by Corey Large and Nicholas Celluzzi. The production, which begins filming in September in Vancouver, is funded by 308 Foundations.

As a playwright, Mamet has received Pulitzer Prizes and Tony nominations for his plays Glengarry Glen Ross and Speed ​​of the Plow. He was nominated for an Academy Award by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for his screenplays for When Tail Wags and The Verdict. Among his most famous screenwriting credits are The Postman Always Rings Twice, The Untouchables, Hoffa, and Hannibal. He also wrote the screenplay for Glengarry Glen Ross, starring Al Pacino.
