Pablo Larrain’s Spencer has begun production. In the film, Kristen Stewart plays Diana Spencer, who would become Diana, Princess of Wales, the first wife of Charles, the Prince of Wales. The film comes from Steven Knight, the writer behind the very good Peaky Blinders but also behind the not-so-good Locked Down.
Spencer will focus on one weekend in the life of Princess Diana, the one where she spends a weekend over Christmas with the Royal Family and makes the decision to leave Charles. “It is a harrowing effort for her to return to herself, as Diana strives to hold onto what the name Spencer means to her.”
It also stars Timothy Spall, Sally Hawkins, and Sean Harris, and is expected to come out later this year. Here’s the first look at Kristen Stewart as Diana. It’s very convincing.
