Kristen Stewart will play princess Diana in a new movie


Kristen Stewart has been interpreted as the princess Diana in a new drama focusing on three crucial days of his life.

Called Spencer, the film will be directed by Pablo Larraín, who also directed the biopic of Jacqueline Kennedy Jackie. The script has been written by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight.

The film will take place during the last Christmas holidays of Diana with the royal family in the early 90’s, when she decided that her marriage with prince Charles was not working.

Speaking of the film, Larraín described in Deadline as ” a fairy tale in reverse “.

“We’ve all grown up, at least I did in my generation, by reading and understanding what is a fairy tale “, stated Larraín.

“Usually, the prince comes and finds the princess, inviting him to become his wife and eventually she becomes queen. This is the fairy tale.

“When someone decides not to be the queen and said:” I’d rather go and be myself ” , this is a big decision, a fairy tale in reverse “, he continued. “I’ve always been very surprised by this and I thought that it would be very difficult to do. This is the heart of the film. “

Explaining the film’s title, which refers to the maiden name of princess Diana, Larraín has said: “It is to find themselves, to understand that the most important thing for her is perhaps to be good, to be with herself and alone.
