Latin filmmaker Alfonso Gomez-Rejon is the director chosen to take charge of "Newsflash," a film about the famous American journalist Walter Cronkite starring Chris Pine, the specialized media The Hollywood Reporter reported Thursday.

"Newsflash", a project that Chris Pine joined in August, will revolve around Cronkite's television coverage of the murder of former US President John Fitzgerald Kennedy (1961-1963).

Mark Ruffalo, meanwhile, will give life to Don Hewitt, television producer and Cronkite's right hand.

"Newsflash" recounted how Kennedy's murder was lived since the writing of CBS News, where Cronkite, an entire institution of American television journalism, was in charge of telling millions of American viewers that its president had died.

Specialized media in Hollywood like Deadline compared this project with the narrative style of "The Social Network" (2010)

This feature film, which is signed by screenwriter Ben Jacoby, has changed over time, since initially Seth Rogen was going to get into the skin of Cronkite and director David Gordon Green ("Halloween", 2018) was going to take reins of the film.

Gomez-Rejon triumphed at the Sundance Festival with his film "Me and Earl and The Dying Girl" (2015), which won the jury prize and that of the public in the US feature film category.

Last week premiere in the US his movie "The Current War", a film of very complex gestation and conflicting release that had, however, with a very prominent cast in which Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon and Tom Holland appeared.

This movie premiered in 2017 at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and sounded like a possible Oscar contender, but its distribution rights were in the hands of The Weinstein Company, so it was completely forgotten and on the shelf after the numerous sex scandals unveiled against Harvey Weinstein.

Now, "The Current War" came to the big screen with an alternate assembly and after having been bought and sold by several different companies in recent months.
