DiCaprio teams up with dad for JFK movie

The DiCaprios are adapting the book Legacy of Secrecy: The Long Shadow of the JFK Assassination for the big screen and plan to release the movie in 2013, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s murder.

The politician was shot dead in 1963 while he was riding in a motorcade through Dallas, Texas with his wife Jackie.

According to Variety.com, the Titanic star is expected to play Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) informant Jack Van Laningham, who got close to Mafia boss Carlos Marcello to determine if he was involved in a plot against Kennedy.
