Mr Efron keeps pushing himself further and further away from the world of High School Musical with some truly punishing roles, not many men would want to get pissed on my Nicole Kidman but in the Paperboy that's what happened and now Efron is taking on one of the biggest conspiracies in American history with Parkland.
Parkland is set to land in cinemas this coming November, check out the the latest trailer and details below.
PARKLAND is the heart-stopping and powerful true story, never before told, of the people behind the scenes of one of the most scrutinised moments in history. Written and directed by Peter Landesman, PARKLAND recounts the chaotic events that occurred in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.
PARKLAND weaves together the perspectives of a handful of ordinary individuals suddenly thrust into extraordinary circumstances: the young doctors and nurses at Parkland Hospital; Dallas’ chief of the Secret Service; an unwitting cameraman who captured what became the most watched and examined film in history; the FBI agents who nearly had the gunman within their grasp; the brother of assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, left to deal with his shattered family; and JFK’s security team, witnesses to both the President’s death and Vice President Lyndon Johnson’s rise to power over a nation whose innocence was forever altered.
Based on the book Four Days In November, by Vincent Bugliosi, PARKLAND is produced by Playtone partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman along with Exclusive Media’s Nigel Sinclair and Matt Jackson, and Bill Paxton.
The ensemble cast includes: Zac Efron (THE PAPERBOY, AT ANY PRICE), Academy Award® nominee Jackie Earle Haley (LINCOLN, WATCHMEN), Colin Hanks (THE GUILT TRIP, W), Academy Award® winner Marcia Gay Harden (MYSTIC RIVER, POLLOCK), Academy Award® winner Billy Bob Thornton (THE MAN WHO WASN’T THERE, ARMAGEDDON), Academy Award® nominee Jacki Weaver (SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, ANIMAL KINGDOM), and Academy Award® nominee Paul Giamatti (SIDEWAYS, THE IDES OF MARCH).
