The heterosexual male (and half the female) population of North America and Europe wept Godtopus tears a couple of days ago when we learned that, despite begging to do so, director Alejandro Amenaba wouldn’t allow Rachel Weisz to burn the brush in their film, Agora.
Maybe Darren Aronovsky will grant her the wish. And what would be more bizarre than watching Jackie-O diddle the skittle?
Indeed, EW is reporting that Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler, Requiem for a Dream) is set to produce and direct a movie about Jackie Onassis. Aronofsky’s wife, Rachel Weisz, is attached to play the lead.
The movie is set to examine Onassis in the four days immediately after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, leading up to his burial. It’s expected to show “the beloved Kennedy at both her most vulnerable and her most graceful.”
Well, that probably rules out any bean flicking. Dammit. But hey! Rachel Weisz as Jackie O? I can dig it. She may not pilfer the pill, but she will wear the pill box.
(And yes: I did enjoy writing this post.)
