Video: Naomi Watts Picked to Play Princess Diana

Naomi Watts has been cast as Princess Diana in an upcoming biopic called Caught in Flight, which will focus on the last two years of her life. The film, which reportedly had Jessica Chastain in the running for the lead role, will portray the princess’ personal life and humanitarian efforts, with filming commencing in the UK later this year. Naomi said of scoring the role, “It is such an honour 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.” The actress is currently in Sydney filming the French-Australian production The Grandmothers with Robin Wright, Xavier Samuel and James Frecheville.
