Indie Film The Limbo Kings on JFK
On Nov. 22, the world will remember John Fitzgerald Kennedy (JFK), the 35th president of the United States, as he was assassinated while traveling through Dallas, Texas, in an open-top convertible 50 years ago.
Coincidentally, JFK was visiting Tampa, FL on Nov. 18 just days before his trip to Dallas.
Tampa-based indie film company, Gulf + Atlantic Films (GAF), says it recently wrapped its short film titled “The Limbo Kings,” featuring JFK, Oswald, Monroe, and Ruby in a fantasy drama taking place in an afterlife waiting room.
“The film is an original screenplay developed years ago with the 50th anniversary in mind. We wanted to produce a very unique film that captured all the players in Kennedy’s life with a unique twist. It’s an amazing story and we couldn’t pick a better time to wrap it up for the 2014 film festival season,” said Director Eric Polins.
St. Pete-based cinematographer Curtis Graham of Greyhouse Films jointly produced “The Limbo Kings”. Graham directed the recently released “The Investigator” that was written by Richard Romano, Ray Romano’s brother.
The cast and crew is from the Florida film market. The Retribution Agent is veteran actor Michael Ray Davis, JFK is captured by Michael Newman, comedian Tony Gaud gives a portrayal of Lee Harvey Oswald, singer/actress Stephanie Coatney channels Monroe, and Jack Amos is a dead ringer for Ruby.
