Today in movies not starring Jessica Chastain: Naomi Watts, not Jessica Chastain, will play Princess Diana

In an increasingly rare instance of a role not going to Jessica Chastain, Deadline reports that Naomi Watts has taken the lead in the Princess Diana movie Caught In Flight, a part which had initially been attached to Chastain in accordance with modern American movie regulations. Instead, Watts will play the Princess of Wales during the last two years of her life, a time during which she, according to the official description, found “true personal happiness for the first time” until our society’s relentless need to gawk at and criticize that personal happiness ended in her in death. Director Oliver Hirschbiegel—whose Downfall similarly concerned a political leader’s quest for true happiness, only, you know, by killing Jews—plans to start shooting later this year, which means it shouldn’t be too long before we hear the names Michael Sheen or Benedict Cumberbatch mentioned, in accordance with modern British person regulations.
