Up-and-coming starlet Jessica Chastain may play the late Princess Diana in an upcoming biopic, reports industry blog Thompson on Hollywood.
The actress is reportedly in talks to play Di in “Caught in Flight,” to be directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel (“Downfall”).
The film focuses on Diana’s private relationship with Pakistani heart surgeon Hasnat Kahn, and is described as a “love story between a princess locked in a tower and an ordinary man.”
The quiet two-year relationship between Diana and Dr. Kahn will be explored in the movie, which insiders say will cast a different light on “The People’s Princess.” (Apparently, the script shows Diana as a damaged woman who stalks the doctor after he calls off the relationship.)
An Ecosse films project, “Caught in Flight” will reportedly start pre-production in March 2012. The movie is slated to shoot in multiple locations - including Pakistan, Angola, the south of France and Paris, where Diana died in a fatal paparazzi car chase.
Chastain, 30, is on her way to becoming A-list. In 2011, the actress starred in “Tree of Life,” “The Help,” “The Debt,” and “Texas Killing Fields.”
Don't see it, Di always looked a bit shy, right up to the end, this person, doesn't look shy, it's not a good fit.
Didn't know that there was a "shy look"?
whoever came up with loser for lady Di needs to go to rehab!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why all the speculation? The perfect person to play her would be....Justin Bieber.
she still alive she fake her death because you media wouldn't leave her alone considering she was getting treated like crap
Just let her rest in peace, she was peoples princess and she will always be .....
Why can't they just focus on the woman's story, rather than one single aspect of her story? A biography about Diana would be far more interesting than watching her chase a doctor for 2 hours.
I can see her playing Sarah Ferguson but not Lady Di
Dont see it happening.......and the story sounds disparaging....is it really necessary to tarnish her?
sorry but she wouldn't be believable
Yeah ! Condoleeza is nice and chocolatey !
Or Condoleezza Rice.
Or Cee Lo. Cee Lo Greene would be incredible.
They really need to give this part to an African American. Maybe Beyonce.
ummmm nooo that kinda crap ruins movies and will cause problems....how about when beyonce dies we get rebecca black to play her ?
Not second! Happy Tuesday! :-)
