Killing Reagan, the 336-page book about the 1981 Ronald Reagan assassination attempt, heads toward the small screen this fall.
The National Geographic Channel is adapting Fox News host Bill O'Reilly's book, Killing Reagan, into a TV movie. Various locations in and around Atlanta are being utilized by film crews as production nears completion.
National Geographic released the first photo of Tim Matheson in the lead role of President Ronald Reagan ahead of the movie's fall premiere.
Tony-, Grammy-, Emmy- and SAG Award-winning actress Cynthia Nixon co-stars as First Lady Nancy Reagan.
“Even nearly 30 years after his presidency, and more than 10 years after his death, Ronald Reagan’s mark on American politics and the global geopolitical landscape, through both his actions and his policies, still reverberates today,” said Bill O’Reilly. “There is much that can be learned by looking back at that riveting period in history.”
Killing Reagan premieres on National Geographic Channel in the U.S. this fall, and around the world early next year in 170 countries and 45 languages.
