The story will follow the iconic first lady right after the assassination of her husband, President John. F. Kennedy. Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky is set to produce the film.
This isn’t the first time Jackie-O will be portrayed on the big screen. Katie Holmes played her in the miniseries The Kennedys and Minka Kelly did a brief but heartbreaking portrayal in The Butler.
We think that Portman is an excellent choice to play the first lady at the time when she lost the love of her life but won the love of a nation!
Do U think the actress is a good choice for the role?
