Alec Baldwin to Star in ‘Kent State,’ About 1970 Vietnam War Protest Shootings

Alec Baldwin has lined up another project, joining the cast of the upcoming feature film Kent State.

The film is set to bring to life the violent and tragic events of May 4, 1970, when four students were shot and killed by the National Guard during a campus protest against the Vietnam War. Baldwin will play Kent State president Robert I. White.

The film is being sold in Cannes by Strive Global Media.

Currently in pre-production, Kent State marks the feature directorial debut of Karen Slade, who also wrote the screenplay. Produced by Kristen Moser of Autumn Moor Productions, the executive producers on the movie include Tom Ortenberg, Kevin Beer, Ivan Williams, and Michael Walsh.

I find it surreal watching depictions of historical events that I remember.
