Tom Hanks Signs On To Narrate Bill O’Reilly’s ‘Killing Lincoln’

We already told you that Bill O’Reilly‘s book Killing Lincoln is being turned into a movie for National Geographic Channel. Now, The Hollywood Reporter adds that Hollywood heavyweight Tom Hanks will be joining the production as the host, narrator and historical commentator.

“It’s odd to say the killing of Abraham Lincoln is an unknown story, but it may as well be,” Hanks said in a statement. “The depth of the intrigue, the breadth of the conspiracy and the bare-naked exposure of human nature is so timeless, it’s a wonder how that seminal tragedy in our history could ever be explained in a few sentences: ‘Ford’s Theater… John Wilkes Booth,’ etc. The murder of Lincoln is not a passage of our history — it was a signpost of our American character, then, now and forever.”
