Based on Vincent Bugliosi's Reclaiming History Parkland is the story of that day the movie is produced by Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman (Game Change, Charlie Wilson's War), Nigel Sinclair (End of Watch, Snitch), Matt Jackson (End of Watch, Snitch), and Bill Paxton, and written and directed by Peter Landesman.
