Naomi Watts

They've tackled Marilyn Monroe in every way, now who's next? How about Princess Diana. Actress Naomi Watts is already in the middle of shooting a new movie under the title Caught in Flight, or also just Diana, where she plays Princess Diana, who died a tragic young death at age 36. There have been a flurry of unnecessary paparazzi photos of the shoot in London showing up online recently, but cutting through all the crap, they've debuted one official photo, found via Empire. It's your standard first look at an actress looking quite perfectly like the real-life person they're portraying, but it's better than all the paparazzi shots at least.

Naomi Watts as Princess Diana

Caught in Flight is being directed by German filmmaker Oliver Hirschbiegel (of The Experiment, Downfall, The Invasion) described as the "love story between a princess locked in a tower and an ordinary man." The script from Stephen Jeffreys (The Libertine) is said to focus on Princess Diana's secret two-year love affair in the mid-1990s with heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Kahn that wasn't revealed until 2008. The cast includes Naveen Andrews as Dr. Khan. Other than that, the production has been keeping quiet until this official photo showed up. The film doesn't have a US distributor yet, but we'll be keeping an eye on things anyway.

    I don't know... I like Naomi Watts just wish we could've seen Jessica Chastain in this role instead.
  • I love Proncess Di. She was like an angel who touched poor people. Just when there was cameras around of course. Her life was as hard as Whitney Houston's that's why the Illuminati killed her.

    One of Greatest Actresses Ever Powerful , Skillful , Mindful There is not so many players who can succeed in any roles (even in their weak movies), Watts is one of them, she is truely Brilliant. I am waiting for her playing in some mighty dramas like Molhaland Drive still. Really Really I hope , see Oscar Statues in her deserveful hands as soon as possible
