     February 9, 2012

Naomi Watts has replaced Jessica Chastain in Oliver Hirschbiegel‘s Princess Diana biopic, Caught in FlightWe reported in November that the film focused on Diana’s real-life secret affair with heart surgeon, Dr. Hasnat Khan, “who was said to be the love of her life.”  However, THR broadens the synopsis by saying the movies takes place “during the last two years of her life,” and “the script charts her search for personal happiness as she turned into a major international campaigner and humanitarian.”  However, since her relationship with Khan reportedly began in 1995 and Diana died in 1997, the timeline still holds.  Presumably, the search for “personal happiness” involved Khan.

Filming on Caught in Flight is set to take place in the UK later this year.  Watts will next be seen in the drama The Impossible, and she’s co-starring opposite Robin Wright in The Grandmothers.
