Filmmakers Tony and Ridley Scott will be creating a documentary about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln based on “Killing Lincoln,” the book by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard which was released this fall.

The book, which has stirred controversy for what critics say are its factual errors, will be the source material for the two-hour film, according to National Geographic President Howard T. Owens. Tony and Ridley Scott were the creative force behind “Gettysburg,” a History Channel film that aired last May.

O’Reilly will be the executive producer of the new film.
