Princess Diana and Naomi Watts

There’s a new royal in town – well at least one being portrayed on the big screen! News just broke that Oscar-nominated Naomi Watts will be playing the beloved Princess Diana in a biopic film titled “Caught in Flight.”

The film is to focus on the two years prior to the famous lady’s death in 1997 when she broke away from the British monarchy and became an international symbol of inspiration.

Jessica Chastain was in the running for the part of Princess Diana

Watts, 43, said in a statement, “It is such an honor to be able to play this iconic role – Princess Diana was loved across the world, and I look forward to rising to the challenge of playing her on screen.”

There have been rumors that upcoming actress and Oscar nominee, Jessica Chastain from The Help, was also in the running for the role, but ultimately the British actress Watts, won out.

There have not been many feature films to cover the life of the late Princess Diana, but I somehow foresee this one doing an excellent job of doing the Princess justice. The film’s screenplay is written by Stephen Jeffreys and is to be directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel.

Filming is to begin later this year and I can’t wait to see the set photos!
