     RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Central Virginia is again the backdrop for a film focusing on President Abraham Lincoln.
     Lighting and production trucks were lined up Tuesday along a section of a busy downtown street in Richmond for a National Geographic channel film. It's called "Killing Lincoln" and it's based on the best seller by Bill O'Reilly. 
     The film is a production of prolific filmmaking brothers Ridley and Tony Scott. Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" was a summer blockbuster.
     The film stars Billy Campbell, who is listed by the production company as a native of Charlottesville. He most recently was in AMC's "The Killing." The assassin John Wilkes Booth is played by Jesse Johnson, the son of actor Don Johnson.
     Director Steven Spielberg's movie about Lincoln that was filmed in Virginia is set to open in November.
