See Pics of Naomi Watts as Princess Diana!
Naomi Watts takes on the iconic role of Princess Diana in the upcoming film Diana. According to Reuters, the film company Ecosse Films has released the first photos of Naomi dressed as the beloved Princess, who tragically passed away in 1997. The movie was previously titled Caught in Flight (and some news sources are reporting that that title remains).
Ecosse says the film will be “compelling portrait of Diana, Princess of Wales during the final two years of her life. It charts how finding true personal happiness allowed her to achieve her defining successes, as she evolved into a major international campaigner and humanitarian.”
Naomi, who was born in the UK, looks strikingly like the real Diana, from her soft features to her feathered hair. What do you think of the resemblance?
Is Naomi the right actress to portray Diana? At least people won’t be complaining that an American is playing a British icon, like Meryl Streep in The Iron Lady.
The film will be directed by German director Oliver Hirschbiegel; a release date has not yet been announced.
