Entertainment One has unveiled this first teaser trailer for the upcoming biopic, ‘Diana.’ The film, previously reported under its working title of ‘Caught In Flight,’ is directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel (Academy-Award nominated for ‘Downfall’) from a screenplay by Stephen Jeffreys (The Libertine). Leading the cast is Academy-Award nominated actress Naomi Watts as the eponymous and iconic Princess. Joining Watts is Naveen Andrews as Dr Hasnat Khan, Douglas Hodge and Juliet Stevenson.
‘Diana’ is described as a compelling portrait of Diana, Princess of Wales during the final two years of her life. It charts how finding true personal happiness allowed her to achieve her defining successes, as she evolved into a major international campaigner and humanitarian. Deadline add that the story is about “Diana’s covert love affair with Dr. Hasnat Khan, a Pakistani heart surgeon. This happened in the last two years of her life, before she met Dodi Fayed, and the need for privacy led to her meeting her lover in disguises. This gave her a sense of living an anonymous life, but her incredible worldwide fame became an issue.” While there’s currently no official release date set for ‘Diana,’ expect the film to land in cinemas sometime during Oscar season later this year.

When you first read the script for ‘Man of Steel’ and you read that they brought Lois Lane and the rest of the characters into a more modern world, what was your reaction to that?
Amy Adams: I was excited by it and I really liked it. Talking to Zack, he really wanted me to feel like a reporter who is kind of transient and moving around and on the ground, getting herself in trouble, but not causing trouble – going after the story. And what I loved was that she was definitely still the intrepid reporter, but she was somebody who was going to be a part of the solution, not just part of the problem. She has more of an inner track on Clark. She’s on the inside, as opposed to being on the outside, and I really like that. I thought it was a very unique idea. And I really loved that Zack wanted it to be this big amazing film, but that it also was very important to him to focus on the characters and the truth, and on grounding the characters in reality, as much as possible, in this amazing world that he created. He wanted all of the characters to have a really true heartbeat, and we spent a lot of time talking about that. That impressed me about Zack.
Speaking on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jamie Foxx spoke on the look of his character Max Dillon/Electro in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2.’ “I play Max Dillon, and this is me before I turn into the villain. My real sister is my hair stylist and she created the Django look, Ray Charles and things like that. So, I told her that, when I’m the nerd guy, I want to be the first black man with a comb over. I told her make me look like I would look if I never made it. I had a jheri curl and things didn’t go right, so I Jimmy Mack it.”
“What’s funny though is doing the voice,” Jamie Foxx says about playing Max Dillon’s villainous alter-ego, Electro. “And the voice is like [growling], “Yes, a world without mercy, a world without power.” But what’s funny is when I forget my line and I have to go back to my regular voice.”
