Finally, they've found their Princess Diana! Oscar-nominated Actress Naomi Watts has officially been cast in upcoming Diana Film, Caught in Flight. Jessica Chastain prior had been attached to the role but had to pull-out due to scheduling. The Film is said to focus on that Icon's life following her Divorce from Charles, centering on a passionate affair she had with Dr. Hasnat Khan, who is said to have been the true "love of her life".
Oliver Hirschbiegel will be helming for Ecosse Films with a $15 million budget. Production is set to take place between Pakistan, Angola, the South of France and Paris.
Earlier there was talk of Kiera Knightley and Charlize Theron in-talks to play Diana also in separate projects, although those do not seem to have taken flight - pardon the pun. I'm di-ing to see this.
