Steven Spielberg and the late Jackie Kennedy Onassis are linked together in a new project.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Spielberg is selling Jackie, a hot script about the late First Lady that’s making the rounds in Hollywood. Noah Oppenheim, a journalist, author and producer on theToday show has written the script.
The story chronicles the days immediately following the assassination of John F. Kennedy from Jackie’s point-of-view. Spielberg is on board the project in a producing capacity.
HBO is a lead contender to buy the script and would likely develop it as a film it could air on its network, says the LAT.
