Based on The New York Times best-selling novel, KILLING LINCOLN is the suspenseful, eye-opening account of the events surrounding the assassination of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln. While some aspects of the plot to slay Lincoln and cripple the newly forming union are widely known, much more of the history unfolds in this insightful thriller. As John Wilkes Booth becomes increasingly obsessed with removing Lincoln from office, a secret faction of conspirators forms, and ultimately empowers Booth to carry out an event that will change America forever. Narrated by Oscar® Winner Tom Hanks* and produced by Tony Scott and Ridley Scott, this historical masterpiece stars Billy Campbell (TV’s The Killing) in a spectacular turn as President Lincoln.
KILLING LINCOLN recounts one of the most dramatic events in American history and details how one gunshot changed the country forever. The movie premiered on the National Geographic Channel and was seen by 3.4 million people, making it the most-watched broadcast in the network’s history. This epic chronicle is the first in a trilogy of books written by Bill O’Reilly and his researcher and partner Martin Dugard that will be adapted for the screen with National Geographic and Scott Free Productions. The second in the trilogy is “Killing Kennedy,” a riveting chronicle of the shocking events surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The final installment in the trilogy is “Killing Jesus,” which follows the events leading up to the crucifixion.
