Steven Spielberg Working on Jackie Kennedy Movie?
The LA Times is reporting that director / producer Steven Spielberg may be working on a film about the late Jackie Kennedy Onassis.
Spielberg is selling "Jackie," a hot script about the late First Lady that's making the rounds in Hollywood. Noah Oppenheim, the head of development at Reveille who's also a journalist, author and former producer at the "Today" show has written the script, which examines the days immediately following the assassination of John F. Kennedy from Jackie Kennedy's point-of-view. Spielberg is on board the project in a producerial capacity.
HBO is a lead contender to buy the script and would likely develop it as a film it could air on its network. Spielberg has a long relationship with HBO; the premium cable channel is currently airing the WWII epic The Pacific, which Spielberg executive-produced.
