Kristen Stewart is involved in another high-profile project which has captured the attention of fans all over the world. Her latest film is titled Spencer and is going to be a biopic about the tragic death of Princess Diana and the events leading up to her demise. Stewart is going to star alongside the likes of Jack Farthing and Sally Hawkins among other big names attached to the project.
In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, who described Princess Diana as “one of the most beloved figures in the history of the world,” Stewart revealed what she felt about the historical icon as well. She reflected: “I feel sort of the same way about her. It happened really quickly. I didn’t grow up with her maybe in the same way. I was really young when she passed away.”
Stewart also provided more information about the ongoing project, claiming that Spencer is quite adept at capturing the atmospheric elements of that time period: “[Spencer] takes place over three days, and it’s this really poetic, internal imagining of what that might have felt like, rather than giving new information.”
“She means a lot to me,” Stewart said, “But it’s all relatively new because I’m from LA and I didn’t grow up in England. Before this, she was not something that was at the forefront of my mind, because I lived so far away from it all.”
Adding, “Now, I can’t stop thinking about her. I often wonder what she’d think about what’s going on in the world right now. To be honest, I’ve now consumed pretty much all there is to consume in terms of videos and interviews. I’ve watched everything that you could hear or see. I even go to sleep with it on.”
At CinemaCon, unseen footage from the film was shown as a part of the studio’s 20-minute presentation. A brand new poster for Spencer was also released which has already sparked online discourses about the aesthetic design of Spencer.
Stewart’s latest film will be screened at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals before having a theatrical release on November 5.
