Rachel Weisz to Star in JACKIE Directed by Husband Darren Aronofsky

Rachel Weisz will play Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in the biopic Jackie which will be directed by Weisz’ husband Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler).  I wonder if Aronofsky wakes up every morning and high-fives himself for being an awesomely skilled writer-director and being married to the sexy and talented Weisz.  If not, he should.

According to EW, the script by Noah Oppenheim centers on the former first lady during the four days between JFK’s assassination his burial at Arlington National Cemetery, “showing the beloved Jackie at both her most vulnerable and her most graceful.”  The project had been rumored as a Steven Spielberg-produced telefilm for HBO, but Spielberg is not involved with the project at this point.  Jackie would be the second collaboration between Weisz and Aronofsky after his 2006 masterpiece The Fountain.

Hit the jump for another photo of Weisz-hotness.  Sadly, there is no known photo of Aronofsky high-fiving himself.
