Convention Countdown: RFK Memorial

Director Chris Columbus has acquired the rights to “The Last Campaign,” Thurston Clarke’s recently published account of Robert Kennedy’s final days campaigning for president. It would be the latest project about RFK — whose life has been depicted for an FX TV movie (where he was played by Linus Roache) and a CBS miniseries (in which he was portrayed by Brad Davis.)

Meanwhile, the Kennedy family is planning a reception in Denver on Aug. 27 (Wednesday) to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial. Proceeds will go to the foundation.

On the host list for the event at the historic Brown Palace Hotel are Ethel Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, Beth and Joseph Kenndy II, Edward Kennedy and his wife, Victoria; Kerry Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy Jr. and his wife, Mary; Max Kennedy and his wife Vicki; John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Kathleen and David Townsend.
