Cate Blanchett will head back downunder to shoot a new film about… JFK’s assassination.

(Yes, you read right. A film lensing in Sydney, about JFK’s assassination in Dallas. It’s called ‘tax breaks’. Cue the imported twinkie standees!)

Variety says David Mamet is directing “Blackbird”, which fixes on a woman named “Janet, who travels to Los Angeles for the funeral of her grandfather, a Hollywood visual effects artist who moonlighted for U.S. special ops agencies. Her grandfather’s well-kept secrets become a threat to her, forcing Janet to discover the truth about a man who dedicated his life to making illusion reality.”

Okay, so it’s not strictly a movie about JFK’s assassination… but still, interesting that they’ve ended up in Sydney.

The ”present-day Hitchcockian nailbiter” which encompasses ” a secret explanation for the 1963 assassination of U.S. president John F. Kennedy” is being produced by Said Ben Said’s Paris-based SBS Prods.
