You know how you read something and you’re like OMG I NEED THIS. Only you didn’t know that you needed it, but somehow it makes you feel complete.
Well that shit just happened to me.
Kristen Stewart is going to play Diana Spencer. Yes, we’re talking about Princess Di. The actress will be staring in the Pablo Larraín directed movie Spencer.
Spencer covers the weekend in the 90’s when Princess Diana decided that her marriage to Charles wasn’t working and she needed to change things, even if it meant that she was not going to be Queen.
The drama will take place over three days during Christmas time, in the House of Windsor in their Sandringham estate in Norfolk, England.
DID WE MENTION KRISTEN STEWART IS GOING TO PLAY HER?
I am about this.
“Kristin is one of the great actors around today,” Larraín said. “To do this well, you need something very important in film, which is mystery. Kristin can be many things, and she can be very mysterious and very fragile an ultimately very strong as well, which is what we need. The combination of those elements made me think of her. The way she responded to the script and how she is approaching the character, it’s very beautiful to see. I think she’s going to do something stunning and intriguing at the same time. She is this force of nature.
“I’ve seen movies from Kristin that are so diverse it’s incredible, showing different layers and her diversity and strength as an actress,” he said. “We’re very happy to have her, she’s very committed. As a filmmaker, when you have someone who can hold such a weight, dramatic and narrative weight just with her eyes, then you have the strong lead who can deliver what we are looking for.”
What do you think of the choice? Are you about this?
Production is set to begin in 2021.
