Jackie – Darren Aronofsky to direct Rachel Weisz

Jackie follows the days following President Kennedy’s assassination from the viewpoint of his wife. It shows the four days between JFK’s assassination and his burial, showing Jackie at both her most vulnerable and her most graceful.
News from the Hollywood Insider is that Academy-Award winning actress Rachel Weisz has the role of the late first lady. Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler), will direct and produce, along with his producing partner Scott Franklin and their Protozoa Pictures film company.
This had been rumoured to be a Steven Spielberg project but that is no longer the case.
It will be interesting to see how Aronofsky’s style translates to telling this tale. Weisz could be a good choice for the lead.
