added: Wed, Dec 20th '17

Jason Clarke (of "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes") is at the center of a major political scandal in the trailer for "Chappaquiddick," a new historical drama about the controversial 1969 incident, in which Senator Ted Kennedy accidentally drove his car off a bridge and into waters at night, which tragically resulted in the drowning death of his passenger, 28-year-old campaign aide Mary Jo Kopechne. To make matters worse, Kennedy did not report the accident to police until the next morning.

Clarke, who can be seen right now in the critically acclaimed Netflix drama "Mudbound," portrays the then 37-year-old Kennedy while "House of Cards" alum Kate Mara appears as Mary Jo.

81-year-old veteran character actor Bruce Dern (Nebraska, The Hateful Eight) co-stars as Joe Kennedy, Ted's wheelchair-bound father. While other supporting cast members include Ed Helms, Jim Gaffigan, Clancy Brown, and Olivia Thirlby.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker John Curran (Tracks, The Painted Veil), the film chronicles the aftermath of the fatal car accident, leading up to Kennedy's famous live televised statement.

"Chappaquiddick" is hitting theaters April 6th.
