Rob Reiner of When Harry Met Sally fame directs.
In the new trailer for LBJ, Woody Harrelson is gunning for that Oscar gold. The actor looks nearly unrecognisable as former president Lyndon B. Johnson in the upcoming biopic.
The events of the movie take place before and after the death of JFK. In the wake of President John F.Kennedy's assassination, Vice President Johnson must take on the mantle of Commander in Chief and ensure the vision of his predecessor is honoured, especially concerning the contentious area of the civil rights movement.
Richard Jenkins stars as Georgia senator and one-time mentor of Johnson, with Jeffrey Davidson playing JFK. Rob Reiner directs.
