The Crown is back to wrapping up the royal drama with six seasons. However, fans will have to wait a little longer to see the final two seasons of the series since production won’t begin until next year, giving fans a two-year break as the series flashes forward in time and lines up a new cast.
Since The Crown has been chronicling the stories of the royal family starting back in 1947, we’ve watched as the likes of Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Margaret, Prince Phillip, and more have aged over the decades. The fourth season will be entering the more contemporary era of their bloodline, where we’ll finally meet Princess Diana played by Emma Corrin. But when the final two seasons come around, Princess Diana will be played by the towering beauty Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby, Widows, Tenet). Read More »

There is a staggering amount of casting news today thanks in part to the in-progress European Film Market at the Berlin Film Festival, where producers take projects to gather foreign distribution deals and financing. So let’s get right to it.
First up, the Princess Diana film Caught in Flight, which will be directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel (The Invasion, Downfall) has found a new Princess. Last year Jessica Chastain was in talks for the role — there was a moment where she was in talks for every big female role, it seems — but now Diana will be played by Naomi Watts. Losing Chastain is unfortunate, but if Watts is the replacement I can’t see too many complaints being aired.
Written by Stephen Jeffreys, the film will shoot later this year with an emphasis on the last two years of Diana’s life; that is, after her 1995 divorce, and through her relationship with heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Khan. “It charts how finding true personal happiness for the first time allowed her to achieve her defining successes evolving into a major international campaigner and humanitarian.” [Deadline]
