First Look – Naomi Watts as Princess Diana

Naomi Watts has been cast as (and will be playing) Princess Diana in a biopic about Diana in the last years of her life. From doing some research on the film I noticed that there was a conflict with the actual title. According to Entertainment Weekly the biopic is currently titled Diana, but according to IMDb and a few other sources the film is titled Caught in Flight. The Oliver Hirschbiegel-directed film looks at Lady Diana’s relationship with Dr. Hasnat Khan; played by Lost’s Naveen Andrews.

In a press release recently Watts stated, “It is such 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.”

UPDATE: The biopic has been officially renamed to just simply Diana.
