A new image of Naomi Watts in her role as Princess Diana has been released online, showing that the actress really managed to look like the former princess of Wales. The movie was formerly titled Caught in Flight, but the title has since been changed to just Diana.
Diana will focus on the final two years of the titular princess’ life, presumably dealing with the years in which she finally found true happiness and evolved into a major international campaigner and humanitarian, at least, that’s what the press release says. The setting for the movie will run the gamut, from far off locations such as Croatia and Mozambique, to more familiar ones such as the UK.
“I’m excited and honoured to be playing the role of a truly remarkable woman, who had such a positive and profound impact in so many ways,” says star Naomi Watts.
There’s no official release date yet, but the film is expected to open in 2013.
