Rachel Weisz & Jackie Kennedy

Rachel Weisz is teaming up with her fiancé Darren Aronofsky for a second big screen project - the couple is set to make a movie based on the life of America's former First Lady Jackie Kennedy.
 
The couple, engaged since 2005 and parents to a three-year-old son, both worked on 2006 film The Fountain, with Weisz playing the leading woman and Aronofsky directing the project.
 
And now Weisz is set to work alongside her partner again - she will play Kennedy in a biopic directed by Aronofsky.
 
The film, titled Jackie, will follow the First Lady as she copes with the assassination of husband President John F. Kennedy in 1963, according to Empire Online.
