Naomi Watts will go royal. She will play Diana, Princess of Wales in filmmaker Oliver Hirschbiegel's upcoming drama Caught in Flight.
The film will focus on the happiness Di sought during the last two years of her life before she died in a car crash in Paris in 1997. She was one of the most beloved and photographed women of her time.
Watts was actually born in Kent, England but moved to Australia when she was 14. She expressed honor at portraying Diana. "It's an honor 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," Watts, who also has two sons, like Di, said.
Production is set for this year in the UK.
