With her role in the upcoming tsunami drama The Impossible, Naomi Watts is certainly keeping busy. New images of the actress as Lady Diana, Princess of Wales have emerged for the project once called Caught in Flight. Now referred to as simply Diana, Downfall director Oliver Hirschbiegel is helming the project which focuses on the last two years of her life. The film centers on her dedication to social cause and her secretive relationship with renowned heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Kahn, who she often referred to as Mr. Wonderful, and had some day hoped to marry.

The filmmakers are reportedly keeping a close eye on detail, recreating precise features of Lady Diana’s wardrobe and appearance.
