Jessica Chastain to play Princess Diana in controversial biopic

Jessica Chastain (star of almost every film released in 2011) has been cast as Princess Diana in the upcoming biopic Caught in Flight.

Indiewire reports from the American Film Market, where it was revealed the film will focus on a ‘secret’ affair between Di and heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Kahn.

Those who have read the script claim the late princess is not portrayed in a particularly glowing manner, and that “she is shown as a damaged¬†person who stalks the doctor after he ends the affair”.

Oliver Hirschbiegel (Downfall) is set to direct, with production commencing next March.
