Although some were saying that both Charlize Theron and Kiera Knightley each were tied to their own respective Princess Diana projects, IndieWire confirms that "It Girl" Jessica Chastain, who currently is in-and-around Toronto filming Horror Mama, has been cast in the coveted (and controversial) role.
The Film titled Caught in Flight is about a secret Affair which took place between Princess Diana and Dr. Hasnat Kahn prior to her meeting Dodi Al-Fayed, whom she was seeing at the time of her passing in August 1997.
Pre-production is said to begin March 2012 for Ecosse Films; Oliver Hirschbiege directs.
