    Oliver Hirschbiegel's biopic is being touted to buyers as the EFM in Berlin gets into its stride.

    Naomi Watts has signed to play British icon Princess Diana in Oliver Hirschbiegel's big screen portrait Caught In Flight.
    The movie is being touted to buyers in Berlin by producers Ecosse Films, the U.K. production and finance banner behind a host of movies including Charlotte Gray, Becoming Jane and Brideshead Revisited.
    Tim Haslam, the former Hanway Films chief executive, is handling worldwide sales under his upstart company Embankment Films.
    Hirschbiegel directs Watts based on the screenplay by Stephen Jeffreys, with production set to begin in the U.K. later this year.
    Billed as a compelling portrait of Diana, Princess of Wales during the last two years of her life, the script charts her search for personal happiness as she turned into a major international campaigner and humanitarian.
    Watts, who will next be seen starring in The Impossible opposite Ewan McGregor, described her casting as "an honour 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."
    Hirschbiegel said Watts has enough in her acting armoury to embody "the warmth, humanity and empathy of such a global icon as Princess Diana."

    I have no interest in a Diana film. Unless they add helicopter explosions and a giant shoot out with the paparazzi to spice things up.

    Another Diana film? I think there's been enough of those. Although most of the ones so far have been those shitty Lifetime Movie Channel type bios. Maybe Naomi Watts can pull it off. Maybe...

    There was another t.v. movie too, called "Diana, Queen of Hearts". I think Richard Attenborough narrated it. I think it was more of a tribute-type thing, though, and not a drama where someone else played the role of Di, so that's sort of different.

    Yeah, there were dozens of those. Ugh. *shudders at the memories* TV was totally unwatchable for a while.

    Does anyone except women with warped princess complex psychology of their own still care about this woman?

    What's even left to say about her, her whole life has been laid out there over and over and over again.

    I might watch a Diana film that was a black comedy. If they play it straight, it's completely pointless.

    That has potential to be hilarious in the right hands.
