From the set of the film, Ms.Watts said: “I’m excited and honoured to be playing the role of a truly remarkable woman, who had such a positive and profound impact in so many ways.”
Diana is described as a 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.
Locations for the 9-week shoot will include Croatia, Mozambique, as well as various locations in and around London and the South of England.
