Directed by Pablo Larraín, the biopic will focus on the latter days of Diana’s marriage to Charles when she decided to end the marriage
The first poster for Spencer, which tells the story of Princess Diana, has arrived. The poster features Kristen Stewart, who will portray the People’s Princess in the movie directed by Pablo Larraín.
The poster has Stewart as Diana, on her knees, hiding her face in a lavish white ball gown. The poster, though it does not reveal the actor’s face, assures the film will be an emotional ride. As explained by the director, the film will not use the cradle-to-grave treatment, but will revolve around one week of Princess Diana’s life.
The film will focus on the latter days of Diana’s marriage to Charles, Prince of Wales. Written by Steven Knight, Spencer will have Jack Farthing play Charles while Stewart essays Diana. Spencer also features Olga Hellsing as Sarah Ferguson, Niklas Kohrt as Prince Andrew, along with Sean Harris, Timothy Spall and Sally Hawkins.
With the arrival of Netflix series The Crown, the life and story of Diana was once again discussed. The life of the enigmatic woman surrounded by family drama, media attention, heartbreak and more was captivating and intriguing. Emma Corrin played Diana in season 4 of The Crown.
After photos of Stewart as Diana were leaked during the film’s production, fans were surprised to see the actor share a striking resemblance to the princess. While this intrigued the fans, another selling point for Spencer is director Pablo Larraín, who is known for directing Jackie, the biographical drama on the life of Jackie Kennedy following the assassination of her husband, President John F Kennedy.
Spencer will have a world premiere at the 78th Venice International Film Festival on September 3 and a theatrical release on November 5 in the US.
