LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Bill O’Reilly and National Geographic Channel are back in the assassination game.

Following its film adaptation of Fox News personality O’Reilly’s book “Killing Lincoln,” the National Geographic Channel will produce a two-hour film based on O’Reilly’s follow-up book, “Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot,” the channel’s president, Howard T. Owens, said Thursday.

As it did with “Killing Lincoln,” National Geographic will team with Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions to produce the new film.

Production on the project will begin this spring, with casting news to be announced shortly. According to National Geographic Channel, the film will combine “rare historical insights and archives with dramatic and emotionally engaging storytelling.”

“Killing Kennedy,” which was co-authored with Martin Dugard and published in October, explores President John F. Kennedy’s 1963 assassination in Dallas, and how his death helped to propel America into the Vietnam War era and spark a deep cultural change in the nation.
