What the hell is going on? Natalie has now signed up for the Jackie bipoic, which she has been linked to since late 2012. Back then it was all about finding the right director and scheduling. Well they have a director in Pablo Larrain (directed the much heralded “No” a couple years back) and a producer in Black Swan’s Darren Aronofsky. The film will begin production at the end of the year.

“ ‘Jackie’ talks about the days when Jackie Kennedy becomes an icon but has lost everything,” said Wild Bunch’s Vincent Maraval, who is overseeing Insiders. Aronofsky, who was president of the Berlin festival jury this year, was highly impressed with Larrain’s Berlinale competition entry “The Club,” which went on to win the fest’s Grand Jury Prize. Portman caught “The Club” in Paris, and loved it. “It’s the ‘Black Swan’ team reunited for Pablo Larrain,” Maraval said.
