There’s a JFK assassination movie coming. And the best news is Oliver Stone isn’t directing it. Leonardo DiCaprio (“The Great Gatsby”) and Robert De Niro are set to star in “Legacy of Secrets” based on the book of the same name. The book follows the saga of FBI informant Jack Van Laningham. DeNiro would play Mafia kingpin Carlos Marcello, who confided to Van Langingham that he ordered the hit on Kennedy.

David O. Russell (“Silver Linings Playbook”) is writing and will direct the film.
