Oliver Stone’s take may have been tanked, but that’s not stopping Hollywood from making another Richard Nixon flick. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Don Cheadle and Sean Penn will star in "The Assassination of Richard Nixon" for writer-director Niels Mueller. Set during the ’70s, "Nixon" centers on the true story of Philadelphia furniture salesman Sam Byck (Penn), who hatches a plot to kill Richard Nixon after Byck’s attempts to live out the American dream are dashed. Byck had planned to hijack a commuter flight in Atlanta and crash the airliner into the White House. Cheadle will play Byck’s only friend, Bonny, a mechanic with whom Byck wanted to start up a business. Ah, that’s ok then…nice to see a new twist on proceedings.
