    Oscar winner Rachel Weisz will portray former First Lady, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in a biopic simply titled Jackie. Yes, we know it's about Jackie before she married Aristotle Onassis, but Jackie Kennedy and Jackie O. are both earned personas. Weisz' fiancée, Darren Aronofsky, who also directed her in the visually stunning The Fountain in 2006, will direct Jackie. The duo has a three-year-old tyke, named Henry. The film will follow Jackie as she copes with the assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy, in 1963.

    Aronofsky is best known for shooting The Wrestler.

    Is Miss Weisz a good choice to play Jackie O.? She is pretty much a physical doppelganger for the late Jackie O.
