Stephen Gyllenhaal, father of actors Maggie and Jake, is set to write and direct the film "The Kennedy Detail" which explores U.S. President John F. Kennedy's assassination story from a different angle reports If Press.

Gyllenhaal's film, which aims to mark the 50th anniversary of the tragic incident next November, is set to examine the Secret Service personnel assigned to protect the President.

Gyllenhaal is assembling material from both former agent Gerald Blaine's book of the same name, and from recent interviews he did with surviving members of Kennedy's security detail. Shooting kicks off in January
