According to Deadline Pablo Larraín will direct the Steven Knight-scripted film, which will cover a critical weekend in the early ‘90s, when Diana decided her marriage to Prince Charles wasn’t working.

During these days, Diana learned she needed to veer from the path that put her in line to be queen one day.

The drama will take place over three days, in one of her final Christmas holidays in the House of Windsor in their Sandringham estate in Norfolk, England.
