Katie Holmes portrayed Jackie O in last year’s The Kennedys, Minka Kelly is playing her in next year’s The Butler, and now it could be Natalie Portman‘s turn to tackle the role. The Oscar-winning star is reportedly being courted for the simply titled Jackie, a Noah Oppenheim-scripted drama about the aftermath of JFK’s assassination as seen through the eyes of his widow.
When the project first got going, Portman’s Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky was attached to direct with Rachel Weisz in the lead. However, both dropped out when their marriage ended in 2010. Portman is said to be waiting on a choice of director before she makes her decision. [Deadline]

Although this November’s Breaking Dawn Part 2 is the last film currently planned in The Twilight Saga, Stephenie Meyer will be back at the box office again just four months later, with March’s The Host. The adaptation of Meyer’s first non-Twilight novel has been in the works for a couple of years now, and picked up steam last year when Saoirse Ronan and Andrew Niccol (In Time) signed on to star and direct, respectively. Max Irons, Jake Abel, and William Hurt joined a few months later, and now Inglourious Basterds actress Diane Kruger has been announced as the latest addition to the cast. More details after the jump.

Apparently Joseph Kosinski‘s Horizons (a.k.a. Oblivion) is the plum gig for actresses in Hollywood right now. Last month, Jessica Chastain beat out a list of up-and-coming actresses — including Olga Kurylenko, Brit Marling, Noomi Rapace, and Olivia Wilde — for one of two lead female roles; this weekend, Hayley Atwell, Diane Kruger, and Kate Beckinsale will vie for the other. Whoever lands the sci-fi flick will be starring opposite Tom Cruise, who leads the cast as soldier and drone repairman Jak. Most details after the jump.

Behind every man on a mental mission to Mars is a good woman. Or, in the case of Douglas Quaid in Total Recall, a good and a bad woman. As director Len Wiseman preps his Summer 2012 remake of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger/Paul Verhoeven film set to star Colin Farrell in the lead, the next big step is bringing those women to life. The two man roles are Quaid’s wife Lori, who was originally played by Sharon Stone, and his female counterpart on Mars, Melinda, originally played by Rachel Ticotin. According to Deadline, several major actresses are currently reading for both roles including Kate Bosworth and Diane Kruger for Lori and Eva Mendes, Paula Patton, Jessica Biel and Eva Green for Melinda.

The first trailer for Mr. Nobody is now online for the second time, courtesy of Quiet Earth. Earlier this week a version dubbed into French popped up in a few places, but despite being the latest from Belgian director Jaco van Dormael, Mr. Nobody is in fact an English language movie and this is our first chance to hear the on-screen performers deliver their dialogue. The full promo has been embedded below the break and I recommend it fully.
The film stars Jared Leto, Sarah Polley, Diane Kruger and Rhys Ifans and, judging by this trailer, Daniel Mays has a pretty tasty role too. I shared the following synopsis of the film when I posted some stills from the film a few months back:
Mr. Nemo Nobody is 35 years old and lives an ordinary life with his wife and three kids but, somehow, he one day wakes up in the swimming pool of an opulent mansion in the year 2092. Not only is he the oldest man in the entire world, at 120, he’s also the only mortal man – nobody else is ever going to die. He tries to work out what is real, and if his real life is the one he should have lived.
