Deadline Hollywood, who is normally quite reliable, is reporting that Natalie is being courted by Fox Searchlight (their last collaboration, Black Swan, turned out okay) for Jackie, a drama focused on Jackie Kennedy in the wake of her husband’s assination.

Darren Aronofsky, who directed Black Swan, was attached to direct with then wife Rachel Weisz starring, but it never happened and the project still doesn’t have a director. According to Deadline, Natalie loves the script (from a writer, Noah Oppenheim, who has no writing credits yet) but her real interest will depend on who comes on to direct.

I’m going to try and find out if this report is accurate, but in the meantime, what do you guys think? Could Natalie pull off Jackie Kennedy?
