Princess Diana biopic set for limited release in November in the US.

Entertainment One will release Diana, a biopic starring Naomi Watts as the famed British princess, on Nov 1 in the United States, the studio said this week. The film will open in limited release that first weekend before expanding into more cities and theatres.

Three films will also open that weekend – Ender’s Game, the Thanksgiving animated comedy Free Birds and the geezer comedy Last Vegas.

Three others will open in limited release – romantic drama About Time, Le Week-End and Aftermath.

Entertainment One picked up Diana towards the end of this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Oliver Hirschbiegel directed the film from a screenplay by award-winning playwright Stephen Jeffreys, which was based on the book Diana: Her Last Love. The film focuses on the last two years of Diana’s life, including her secret love affair with Hasnat Khan (played by Naveen Andrews in the movie). — Reuters
