Princess Diana

I get show-news on my mail almost everyday. Today I read that Keira want to try herself as a princess Diana in new film. Have you heard anything about it?

Nope.
There is a Princess Diana movie in the works, but it's really early. And, it has a German actress named Jenny Elvers attached to play Diana.

yep, I've heard about this.... but the source was the ever reliable ContactMusic, so I didnt bother posting it.

A controversial book "Diana and the Paparazzi", is at the centre of a bidding war at this year's Cannes Film Festival in France. Film producer Quentin Reynolds, who is bidding for the rights, hopes the movie adaptation will be as popular at the box office as The Queen, which won Dame Helen Mirren a Best Actress Oscar. He says, "Already the word in Hollywood is 'get Knightley'. It's a story that has everything: pathos, tragedy, comedy, adventure...and Princess Diana. "For every pound The Queen makes, a film about Diana will make ten."

I'm basing my "nope" off of what I've read on IMDBpro. They have projects in the treatment stage profiled, so it's pretty comprehensive. As for the book, if they are simply bidding for the rights at the moment, any project would probably be pretty far off. It'll have to be adapted. At this point, Keira's as likely to play the lead role in the screenplay I'm writing, as she is Diana.

So she did work for charity, so does Princess Anne, and most people hate her. I for one was glad to see the back of her, and don't for one second mourn her loss.
I don't know much about the princess. but people love royals, especially we Americas. but my guess, she would be selling herself short.

They had a little bullet about that in Entertainment Weekly. Personally, I don't think the part is right for her

I read a lot of comments and texts about this subject. Some people think this role is very heavy for Keira but some people have difference opinion from others.:icon_arro I am sure the best decision will be taken by Keira and producer.:icon_ques
Anyway,ı think Keira has a wonderful ability and adapts herself well for her roles. If she gets this role,she can be successful.

Me too think the best choice will be made by Keira, anyway I honestly think that would be a good and successful film.

I think, that should accept this role Keira. Probably, there would be greatest challenge for she, than roles in other movies.
