The first official look at Watts as Princess Diana has come online, and she certainly looks the part.
The still is very simple, showing Watts with Diana's signature short hair and black suit. Watts' performance has been getting rave reviews, according to very early screenings and buzz.
Deadline recently reported that Entertainment One has already picked up the distribution rights to 'Diana', and the film's said to follow Diana's life after her divorce, and focus on her relationship with Dr. Hasnat Khan [played by Naveen Andrews] and her involvement with a campaign against landmines.
