Princess Diana conspiracy doc securing distribution deals


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The film didn’t make as big of a splash at Cannes as one might have thought, but not it seems that audiences will be able to see the conspiracy-stirring Princess Diana documentary “Unlawful Killing” and judge for ourselves whether director Keith Allen is off the mark or on to something larger.

Allen’s film, financed by the late Dodi Al-Fayed’s father, Mohamed, paints a theory that places blame on Diana’s automobile death on the Royals family. And now it has secured “key distribution deals” in such places as Russia and Spain, with an eye on securing a North American deal, THR reports.

“We’re determined to have a major North American release, whether in theaters or on television,” said Conor Nolan, an employee of Al-Fayed’s production company. He also said that distributors in Japan, Italy and Australia are interested.

Lukewarm reviews from Cannes seemed to kill the film’s chances at seeing the light of day. But the power of Princess Diana, and the influence she continues to have over people, likely have kept interest in “Killing” somewhat high. Plus, people love conspiracy theories, no matter how thin.

We’ll continue to track “Killing,” which could continue to his festivals like Toronto, New York or Venice if producers want to continue generating headlines around the controversial documentary.

    “Nomen est omen,” the name is an omen. Prince William’s second name is Arthur. Merlin the Grail Druid–whose father was an incubus according to the legend, giving Merlin the power to see the future–foretold the coming Celtic restoration and accompanying collapse of the Anglo-Saxon regime. Now we know why. It all has to do with the truth concerning Diana’s death. A firestorm is coming.
