Spielberg Onboard for Jackie Kennedy Film


Steven Spielberg will produce Jackie, a project he is selling about the late Jackie Kennedy Onassis, according to the Los Angeles Times. Noah Oppenheim, the head of development at Reveille, wrote the script, which zeroes in on the days right after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, told from the perspective of Jackie. HBO is reportedly the lead contender to buy the script, which it would likely air on its network. No word yet on who will play the cultural icon. [LAT via Movieline]
