Jessica Chastain is Caught in Flight

Jessica Chastain is Caught in Flight

Jessica Chastain is going to be getting her royal treatment on with her latest role. The rising Hollywood “It” girl, who’s had roles in “The Tree of Life” and “The Help” is set to star in director Oliver Hirschbiegel’s “Caught in Flight”.

Written by Steven Jeffreys (“The Libertine”), the film will focus on Diana’s affair with Dr. Hasnat Kahn 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. And indeed, the script “Caught In Flight” will apparently portray the Princess “as a damaged person who stalks the doctor after he ends the affair.”

Already in pre-production, the film is set to begin shooting in March with shooting planned for Pakistan, Angola, the South of France and Paris for the film budgeted around $15 million.

This isn’t the only Princess Diana film in the works. The Playlist reports that two other films. One, from producer Stephen Evans, was going to be based on the book “Diana: Closely Guarded Secret” by Diana’s lifelong bodyguard, Ken Wharfe. The film was budgeted at $30 million, with boasts of Charlize Theron and Ewan McGregor circling roles. Meanwhile, Pathé films was also developing a biopic with names like Keira Knightley and Dame Helen Mirren (as the Queen Mother) being tossed around.

Think any of the projects being filmed will have some input from Prince William & Catherine? What do you guys think of Chastain taking on the role of Princess Di?
