JFK Jr.: The TV Movie

09/11/1998 at 12:00 AM EDT

Tall, dark and handsome actor wanted to play American icon. Fox TV Pictures has announced it will produce a TV movie to air next year on the life of John Kennedy Jr. The movie will be based on British author Wendy Leigh's 1999 biography, "Prince Charming: The John F. Kennedy Jr. Story." No casting has been announced. "From the moment he was born, the world fell in love with John F. Kennedy Jr., and the desire to revisit his life remains undiminished," Fox executive Marci Pool told the Hollywood Reporter. This July will mark the first anniversary of the plane crash that claimed Kennedy, his wife, Carolyn, and her sister, Lauren Bessette.
