Princess Di portrayed by Keira Knightley & Charlize Theron?

Two different film projects focusing on Princess Diana are currently in discussion.

Pathe Films (who produced Keira Knightley in The Duchess and Helen Mirren in The Queen) are reportedly hoping to cast both actresses in a biopic of Diana. It would focus on Diana's early years as a princess, her marriage to Charles and her death in Paris. Keira would be cast as Princess Di and Dame Mirren would be Frances Shand Kydd, Di's mother.

A second film (by Bafta-winning producer Stephen Evans) would see Charlize Theron cast as Princess Di with Ewan McGregor portraying Ken Wharfe, Diana's bodyguard of 8 years.

Passing this information on for those interested but I have to say that I am not fond of either of those actresses being cast as Princess Di. Please... no.

  1. I'm all for the Ewan McGregor news. But I really can't see either Keira or Charlize as Princess Diana...

  2. Who would be good considerations to play Diana? Would they necessarily have to very closely resemble Diana or would overall acting ability and their "vibe" be enough, do you think?
    Carey Mulligan
    Daniella Denby-Ashe
    Michelle ?(Lady Mary-Downton Abbey)
    any ideas?
