Update [7/5/12]: First Official Still
We have a first look at Naomi Watts as Princess Diana from the set of Oliver Hirschbeigel‘s Caught in Flight. The actress snapped the role after Jessica Chastain dropped out earlier this year. As we previously reported, the movie will center on Diana’s two-year affair with heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Kahn who was regarded by many to be “the love of her life”. The relationship, which took place between 1995 until a few months before her death in 1997, was so serious that the late princess was considering converting to Islam. The film is described as a “love story between a princess locked in a tower and an ordinary man.”
The film will likely draw controversy even though fifteen years have gone by since Diana’s death. At any rate, Watts is an excellent choice for the role and as seen in the pic below, has the look down pat. Let us know what you think!
