LD Entertainment and Bliss Media are teaming with Protozoa Pictures to finance and produce “Jackie,” a film about the life of Jacqueline Kennedy after the assassination of her husband President John F. Kennedy.
Natalie Portman plays the iconic first lady in the film and a first look photo of her in the role is out below. Pablo Larrain (“No,” “El Club”) helms the project which Darren Aronofsky, Scott Franklin, Ari Handel, Juan de Dios Larrain and Mickey Liddell are producing.
Peter Sarsgaard, Greta Gerwig, and John Hurt also star while Noah Oppenheim (“Allegiant”) penned the script. The project marks the first English-language feature of Larrain.
