Kristen Stewart is returning to the big screen—but this time, she’s taking on an unexpected role: Princess Diana.
The 30-year-old actress will play Princess Di in the upcoming film Spencer, according to Deadline.
The movie will take place in the ’90s, when the royal realized her marriage to Prince Charles was headed for divorce. Although the story will span only three days, it will highlight her heartbreaking decision to walk away from a future as queen consort.
Pablo Larraín (Jackie) will direct Spencer, with Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders) writing the script. In an interview with Deadline, Larraín explained why he cast Stewart in the highly coveted role, warning fans that it’s not a love story.
