Next up may be Natalie Portman. Deadline.com reports that the Harvard grad, who won an Oscar for “Black Swan,” is being courted to play

(The script was penned by Noah Oppenheim, a writer and former “Today” show producer.) Darren Aronofsky, who directed Portman (top left) in “Black Swan,” was previously linked to the project, but he dropped out after splitting with his wife, actress Rachel Weisz, who was going to play Jackie. It’s not known if Aronofsky would be interested in directing if Portman plays the part.
