Watts captures look of a princess

Naomi Watts captures the look of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, as she recreates her famous half-smile for a new film role.

Wearing diamond earrings and a dazzling necklace the British-born actress is seen in the first official photograph since filming began this week on the movie Diana.

The film - which had previously been known as Caught In Flight - follows the princess during the final two years of her life.

Diana died in 1997 in a Paris car crash and her death touched the nation.

Speaking from the movie set, Oscar-nominated Naomi said: "I'm excited and honoured to be playing the role of a truly remarkable woman, who had such a positive and profound impact in so many ways."

Other British stars to appear in the film - directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel - include Naveen Andrews, Douglas Hodge and Juliet Stevenson.

It will be filmed over the next nine weeks.

Ecosse Films, which is making the movie, said today: "Everyone's aim is to produce a truly insightful and compassionate study of Diana's later years."
