Watts to take flight as Diana

February 10th, 2012 by bash Comments

King Kong star Naomi Watts will play Diana, Princess of Wales in a new film, it has been confirmed.

Downfall director Oliver Hirschbiegel will helm the movie, titled Caught in Flight, which will see the British-born actress portray The People’s Princess during the final two years of her life.

Watts said it was “an honour to be able to play this iconic role” while Hirschbiegel said it would be a “compelling portrait”.

The movie, produced by Ecosse Films, will begin shooting in the UK later this year.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
