Rachel Weisz to Star as Jackie Kennedy 


Rachel Weisz is attached to play the late first lady in "Jackie" about the immediate days following President Kennedy's assassination EW.com exclusively learned.

Weisz will reteam with her fiancee, the fantastic Darren Aronofsky ("The Wrestler"), who is set to direct and produce. The two previously worked together on the off-key but earnest 2006's "The Fountain."

Apparently, the "Jackie" script by Noah Oppenheim has been a hot commodity for sometime now. EW.com is saying that the film "catalogs the four days between JFK’s assassination and his burial, showing the beloved Jackie at both her most vulnerable and her most graceful."

I can't wait to see this film! I'm sure, Academy Award-winner Weisz will be able to pull off this performance, and Aronofsky will flash his auteur vision on the big screen.
