Directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel and written by Steven Jeffreys ("The Libertine"), the film will focus on Diana's affair with Dr. Hasnat Kahn (played by "Lost" star Naveen Andrews) that lasted from 1995 until a few months before her death in 1997. He was regarded by many to be the love of her life, and she was said to be devastated when the relationship was over, with some speculating that she dated Dodi Fayed in order to make him jealous.
While Hirschbiegel's record is a bit all over place ("Downfall," "The Invasion"), the story here is undoubtedly compelling, and certainly with Watts in the lead it has our attention. No release date or distributor yet. [Kinopoisk]
