As one of the most iconic and influential women in American history, a big-budget treatment of Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis would seem long overdue. Now, though, the gears of the Hollywood machine are turning and it appears that 'Jackie' is about to become a reality, as the movie has found just the right star to play the All-American Girl: British actress Rachel Weisz.

Yes, according to Entertainment Weekly, Weisz has been tapped to star in writer Noah Oppenheim's examination of the days immediately following the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963. 'Jackie,' which last month was rumored to have Steven Spielberg attached, will actually be directed by Weisz's finacé and long time beau Darren Aronofsky.
