You know what can never not be dangerous territory? …Biopics. Whether it’s André 3000 as Jimi Hendrix, Katie Holmes and Greg Kinnear in The Kennedys, or Johnny Depp as multiple Rolling Stones in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.
All jokes aside, it was Lindsay Lohan in Liz & Dick and not the bath salt incident in Miami that proved the existence of zombies. We’re all a little rightfully on edge…
Naomi Watts is the latest to jump into some big frickin’ shoes, those belonging to the beloved Princess Diana. Of course, Naomi is a credible actress with an Oscar nomination (21 Grams) under her belt, so we should be less on edge.
Pictures of her in the yet-to-be-titled film following Watts as Diana before her death in 1997 have appeared and I don’t know what to think. Most look shockingly like the Princess of Wales but the more candid ones really don’t.
I/we should be less concerned with her appearance and more afraid of the script, insulting every British person over the age of 17 is a strong possibility.
