Chris Pine is about to become the most trusted voice in America.
The "Wonder Woman" and "Star Trek" star is attached to play iconic CBS news anchor Walter Cronkite in the drama "Newsflash," according to Deadline.
"Newsflash" takes place on November 22, 1963, the day that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Texas. The movie looks in depth at the day that television network news came of age, and that Cronkite became the most trusted TV newsman of America.
Mark Ruffalo is attached to play Don Hewitt, Cronkite's producer, who helped navigate the chaos in an unimaginably tragic day in America.
The movie will also feature Dan Rather, then a young reporter who happened to be in Texas and was among the journalists who frantically dug for truth after reports went over the wire that gunfire rang out in vicinity of the president’s motorcade.
No director is attached yet.
