Diana, which was previously titled Caught in Flight, is directed by Downfall's Oliver Hirschbiegel and tells the story of the last years of the life of the princess. The film also portrays Diana's relationship with Dr. Hasnat Khan (portrayed by Naveen Andrews).

At Cannes in May, Entertainment One acquired the U.S. distribution rights to the film. The title is billed in the trailer with the line, "The legend is never the whole story."
