Charlize Theron and Keira Knightley will be playing Princess Diana in opposing movies! The movies Charlize Theron and Keira Knightley will be in are about completely different aspects of Princess Dianaâ€™s life.
Charlize Theron will be teaming up producer Stephen Evans. Theron and Evansâ€™ movie will center on Princess Dianaâ€™s friendship with former bodyguard Ken Wharfe. It will be based on Wharfeâ€™s book: â€œDiana: Closely Guarded Secret."
Speaking about Charlize Theron and his upcoming movie, Stephen Evans said, â€œWe are intending to make the authentic movie of Diana by using the voices of the people who were there - and Ken Wharfe was right there at her side at the most significant part of her life."
Keira Knightleyâ€™s Princess Diana movie will be a biopic of Princess Dianaâ€™s life and will also star Dame Helen Mirren. Dame Helen Mirren won an oscar in 2007 for her role as Queen Elizabeth in the movie Queen Elizabeth II. This time around, Mirren will not be playing Queen Elizabeth (though that would have been interesting). She will instead take on the role of Princess Dianaâ€™s mother, Frances Shand Kydd.
It will be interesting to see Charlize Theron and Keira Knightley portraying Princess Diana. It wonâ€™t really be a competition to see whether Theron or Knightley make a better Diana. The main test will be of their acting abilities in general.
Who do you think will be the better Princess Diana? Charlize Theron Keira Knightley?
