So, hold the phone: Natalie Portman’s not just playing Ruth Bader Ginsburg, she’s also playing Jackie Kennedy?
Oh yes she is.
The Tale of Love and Darkness director and star is set to headline the Darren (Black Swan) Aronofsky-produced Jackie, a biopic about the first lady to be directed by the Chilean helmer Pablo Larraín (No). The project will center on Mrs. Kennedy’s life during the four days following the 1963 assassination of JFK.
Production on the film is will tentatively begin toward the end of the fall, so get ready for some stylish paparazzi shots of the actress before the new year.
