Rachel Weisz to play Jackie Kennedy?
EW’s Hollywood Insider says Darren Aronofsky plans to direct Rachel Weisz as Jackie Kennedy. Noah Oppenheim’s screenplay “catalogs the four days between JFK‚Äôs assassination and his burial, showing the beloved Jackie at both her most vulnerable and her most graceful.” (Thanks to noypi for the wake up call.)
Weisz‚Äôs fiancee, director Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler), will direct and produce, along with his producing partner Scott Franklin and their Protozoa Pictures film company. The script had been rumored as a Steven Spielberg-produced telefilm for HBO, but Spielberg is not involved in any way, though his agency, CAA, has put together the package that they are now shopping to the major studios.
