Natalie Portman: ‘Jackie’ Kennedy fashion in upcoming Pablo Larraín movie

Ramon Novarro biography Beyond Paradise

Notwithstanding the box office-friendly Thor movies, which revolve around Chris Hemsworth in the title role, Natalie Portman has yet to have a star vehicle as impactful as Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, which earned her the Best Actress Academy Award nearly five years ago. Who knows, perhaps Pablo Larraín’s Jackie will be one such vehicle.

Following U.S. First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy a.k.a. Jackie Kennedy in the days after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the biopic is slated for a 2017 release. The image above is the film’s official “first look,” initially posted at

Larraín, whose The Club is Chile’s submission for the 2016 Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award, has another movie coming out prior to Jackie: Neruda, starring Gael García Bernal and Luis Gnecco (as Pablo Neruda).

Darren Aronofsky and Juan de Dios Larraín are the two credited producers, while Noah Oppenheim (The Maze Runner, The Divergent Series: Allegiant) is the credited screenwriter.

Why no mention of her film debut in directing, from the book THE TIME OF LOVE AND DARKNESS? In which she also stars. It’s in Hebrew
