"Caught In Flight" is an upcoming Princess Diana biopic set for pre-production in March 2012. The film, directed by Oliver Hirschblegel, will showcase the late Princess's relationship with Dr. Hasnat Khan. Princess Diana was said to have had a secret romance with the surgeon in the mid-1990s.

Princess Diana, who was killed in a tragic car crash in 1997, met Dr. Kahn two years prior to her death. As the story goes, the princess met the doctor while visiting a friend who recently had surgery. According to Dr. Kahn, who revealed details of the secret affair to the British newspaper "The Telegraph," in 2008, Princess Diana considered converting to Islam for his sake. He said the Princess and him had such a serious relationship that she traveled with him to Pakistan to meet his family.

The film won't portray Princess Diana in a favorable light, say those who've read the film's script. According to Steven Jeffrey's, of The Libertine, the movie makes Diana appear as a "damaged person who stalks the doctor after he ends the affair."

Actress Jessica Chastain has been cast to play Princess Diana in the upcoming film 'Caught in Flight.' Jessica Chastain also starred in "The Help," "Take Shelter," "The Debt," and "The Tree of Life."
