Naomi Watts Playing Princess Diana in 'Caught in Flight'

Naomi Watts has been cast as Princess Diana in the upcoming biopic Caught in Flight.

“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,” the 43-year-old actress said in a statement (via EW).

The film will reportedly focus on “the last two years of the princess’ life and charts how finding true personal happiness for the first time allowed her to evolve into a major international campaigner and humanitarian.”

Jessica Chastain was previously rumored to play the late Royal.

I don’t know, I think Naomi will need to lay off the lip injections and botox if she’s gonna play Diana, who clearly didn’t do that stuff.

halle berry would be perfect for this role

@Britney: You think you’re funny or something?
Btw, I liked Jessica for the role, shame she didn’t get the part.

@ somewhere over the rainbow

i also liked Jessica for the role but perhaps William and Harry did not want her.

too short, Jessica Chastain was a much better pick

i couldn’t find any actor who look as beautiful as Diana!

Jessica Chastain has more resemblance to Diana, esp. when she laughs and gets shy. I was more excited to see her in this role. But Naomi Watts is also a good actress and I’m sure the make-up and new hair or wig will change her drastically and make her look like Diana.

That’s an awful photo of Diana. Is that the best you can do?

Is this a tv movie? Can’t see it being big box office material and am surprised Naomi would be interested.

diana is iramplacable..

@janet: Why do you think the filmmakers are doing this for the box office? Are you a moron?

Another iconic role ruined by Naomi. First it was Marilyn Monroe, now it’s Princess Diana. Who’s next–Grace Kelly?

I think maybe Nicole Kidman would´ve been better, She´s tall and shy
