Finally, the moment Smallville fans have been waiting for – Tom Welling will co-star in Parkland, a John F. Kennedy biopic featuring Paul Giamatti, Zac Efron, and Billy Bob Thornton.

Deadline reports that the film will focus on the events at Parkland Hospital in the hours after the JFK assassination. Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, and Gary Goetzman are all set to produce, while Peter Landesman will direct. The film is planned to be released this year around the time of the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination.

There have been no details released on who Welling will play or how large of a role he will have, but hopefully, these details will be known soon.

Aside from playing Clark Kent for ten years on Smallville, Welling has also starred in a few films such as Cheaper by the Dozen and The Fog. He also was the executive producer of the short-lived CW show Hellcats.

I am very excited to see Welling act again! It has been way too long since we’ve seen him in front of the camera, and I am very curious to see how different this character will be from the others he has played!

    As a HUGE Smallville fan, the only news that would make me even more excited would be a new Alison Mack project! But, honestly, I’m happy to see him getting involved in a more serious project. I’m intrigued to hear more about his role, but this is definitely a step in the right direction for him.

      YES! Love Allison Mack. She needs her own TV show or something.

        She was on Wilfred season 2! I didn’t watch it, but I’m sure she was great!

      I think it will be great to see him in such a different role too! Very intrigued to find out more about his character. There was a BTS photo on Twitter earlier, but I don’t know if that should be added to the post or not?

    I miss watching Smallville. The first series that I really followed from start to finish. Yes it got frustrating with the storylines and the plot twists, but it was still Smallville.

    Happy to hear about Welling’s new projects and can’t wait to see him on my telly again.
