Naomi Watts Plays the People’s Princess in Trailer for New Diana Biopic

British actress – and Academy Award nominee – Naomi Watts will be playing Princess Diana in an upcoming feature film. Titled simply Diana, the movie will explore the two years leading up to the sudden and tragic death of the “People’s Princess” in a car crash in France.

eOneFilms acquired the biopic at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and will also be distributing it in the US, though no release date has been announced yet beyond “late 2013”. They released a trailer for it this week, which you can watch below:
