Jessica Chastain has starred in a variety of movies already this year from the spy thriller, The Debt, to the heavy drama of The Tree of Life, just to name a few (there were five others just this year). In September, Chastain forged ahead with yet another role, landing one of the two leading female roles in the upcoming sci-fi epic Horizons, opposite Tom Cruise. She could also end up playing the late Princess Diana in an upcoming biopic as well.
Thompson on Hollywood reports that one of the projects that might move forward after being announced at the American Film Market is Caught in Flight, which would see Chastain as Diana in a story described as "love story between a princess locked in a tower and an ordinary man". The story is based on the secret love affair between Diana and heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Kahn and reportedly portrays Diana as a "damaged person who stalks the doctor after he ends the affair".
The script for Caught in Flight was written by Stephen Jeffreys (The Libertine) with German director Oliver Hirschbiegel (Five Minutes of Heaven). Should everything move forward, production begins in the spring of next year. Rufus sewell starts a war in Paradise Lost; Miley Cyrus is Dracula's daughter >> Posted 11.08.11 by Ryan
