Naomi Watts as Princess Diana: First Look at Biopic Caught in Flight

Having replaced one-time star Jessica Chastain in the Princess Diana biopic Caught in Flight, Naomi Watts was photographed on the set of the now-filming project, and the resemblance is... uncanny. Maybe it's just the layered period blonde perm or the boxy sensible suit 'n' tights, but Watts looks to have slid quite fittingly into the skin of the late Princess of Wales, who embarks on a torrid love affair with Pakistani-born heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Khan (played by LOST's Naveen Andrews) in the '90s-set drama.

The film (directed by Downfall's Oliver Hirshbiegel) depicts Princess Di and Khan's secret two-year relationship, which ended just months before her tragic death in 1997. According to previous reports, Diana "is shown as a damaged person who stalks the doctor after he ends the affair." Fun. Can't wait!

    Yo Jen! Unrelated, but what's up with ST? Is he out of town or something? I feel like he hasn't written an article in a lot of days. Is he just managing more now?

    ST, I miss your wit and wisdom. No disrespect, Jen. Love your wit and wisdom too.
