Jessica Chastain: Princess Diana Movie Still in 'Talks'
Jessica Chastain was the It-Girl of 2011, but don't expect her to slow down in 2012. In addition to potentially starring on Broadway in an adaptation of "The Heiress," Chastain is also planning to appear in Kathryn Bigelow's untitled movie about the killing of Osama Bin Laden. But what of that Princess Diana biopic she was reportedly attached to late last year?
"There's some talks about that," a bubbly Chastain said on the red carpet at the Golden Globes on Sunday, "but next I'm going to Kathryn Bigelow's new film."
The Princess Diana film, "Caught in Flight," is sure-to-be controversial; it will focus on Diana's long-time relationship with Dr. Hasnat Kahn, "the love of her life." German director Oliver Hirschbiegel ("Downfall," "The Invasion") will direct.
As for Chastain, the actress -- nominated at the Globes in the Best Supporting Actress category for her work in "The Help" -- was positively thrilled to be on the red carpet.
"To be here for my first year as a nominee is a big, big deal for me," she said.
