Kristen Stewart will play the role of Princess Diana in the upcoming movie ‘Spencer’
Hollywood diva Kristen Stewart is all set to play Lady Diana in her upcoming biopic titled ‘Spencer’.
‘Spencer’ is a story about the late Princess Diana and her break-up with Prince Charles, according to BBC. The early ’90s is the setting of the film, it is directed by Pablo Larraín (who also made a biopic of Jackie Kennedy in 2016), while the script is done by Steven Knight (creator of Peaky Blinders).
The Steven Knight movie is based on “a critical weekend when Diana decided her marriage to Prince Charles wasn’t working, and that she needed to veer from a path that put her in line to one day be queen. The drama takes place over three days, in one of her final Christmas holidays in the House of Windsor in their Sandringham estate in Norfolk, England,” entertainment website Deadline reported.
While talking to Deadline Larraín said, “She’s a woman who, in the journey of the movie, decides and realizes that she wants to be the woman she was before she met Charles”.
Larraín told the reasoning behind choosing Kristen Stewart in the lead role, in his words,
“Kristen is one of the great actors around today. She can be many things, and she can be very mysterious and very fragile an ultimately very strong as well, which is what we need”.
