Leonardo DiCaprio’s JFK film is moving forward. The conspiracy to kill President John F. Kennedy will be coming to the big screen for the first time since Oliver Stone’s controversial all-star movie “JFK.” The assassination will be re-examined by Leonardo DiCaprio in a new film called “Legacy of Secrecy.” Robert De Niro will star in the film as Carlos Marcello, the Mafia boss who admitted to ordering the hit on Kennedy.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company, Appian Way, announced three years ago that they were going to make a film about the shadowy circumstances surrounding the day that changed American history in Dallas in November, 1963.
The project project was put together by Leonardo DiCaprio’s father George, who says the film will finally be moving forward to production. “Legacy of Secrecy” follows the theory that mob boss Carlos Marcello confided to the writer Van Langingham that he was the one who issued the order to assassinate the young president. The FBI questioned more than a dozen associates of Marcello in the months following the assassination, but those interviews never made it into the Warren Report, the official document on the assassination that was ordered by President Lyndon Johnson. Marcello died in 1993.
Lamar Waldron and Thom Hartmann published the book “Legacy of Secrecy” in 2009. George DiCaprio said that Van Laningham knows it all but "he's never spoken to anyone."
The JFK assassination has been made it to the big screen several times besides the contentious Oliver Stone movie: "The JFK Assassination: The Jim Garrison Tapes," which questioned the Warren Commission findings and presented other theories won the Documentary Award at the San Sebastian International Film Festival; "Beyond JFK: The Question of Conspiracy," which contained never-before-seen footage and interviews; "The Murder of JFK: A Revisionist History," which also showed rare archival footage and "Rush to Judgment," based on a book by Mark Lane. In 2003, the thirtieth anniversary of the JFK assignation, a rock opera was produced in New York City that blamed everyone for the death of the president called, AssassiNation: We Killed JFK.
