Jessica Chastain playing Princess Diana in planned biopic


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Jessica Chastain used 2011 as a coming-out party, displaying her incredible range in such vastly different pictures as “Take Shelter,” “The Help,” “The Debt” and Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life.” Now that Hollywood knows she exists, it’s time for the industry to use her properly. Here’s one such example of a film role Chastain was born to play.

The redheaded beauty will play the late Princess Diana in a pending biopic titled “Caught in Flight,” according to The Washington Post. It will be directed by “Downfall” helmer Oliver Herschbiegel, and will focus on a love affair the royal had with Pakistani surgeon Hasnat Khan, which reportedly last two years and ended shortly before Diana’s death.

“The project is currently being shopped around at the American Film Market,” the Post reports, adding that if “Caught in Flight” does not get proper financial backing, then plans to begin pre-production in March could change.

Chastain proved she could play virtually any shade in 2011, switching roles with ease and never failing to convince the audience of her motivations. Playing Diana would be a massive challenge. Do you like the selection? Do you think it’s too soon for a Princess Diana movie? And if they are going to do a Diana biopic, is this the story that you’d want told? Let us know below.
