Naomi Watts to play Princess Diana, and more casting news

Been wondering about this one: Today comes the announcement that Naomi Watts, last seen in “J. Edgar,” will play Diana, Princess of Wales in “Caught in Flight,” a drama about the last two years of the princess’s life. Oliver Hirschbiegel (“Downfall”) will direct the film, which begins production later this year. No word on who will play Prince Charles.
In other casting news:
Morgan Freeman will team with Tom Cruise for the post-apocalyptic thriler “Oblivion,” directed by Joseph Kosinski. I’m having a hard time visualizing this movie, as wouldn’t Ethan Hunt have found a way to keep the apocalypse from happening?
— Robert Redford will be the sole cast member in writer/director J.C. Chandor’s follow-up to “Margin Call”: “All Is Lost,” about a man lost at sea.
— Oscar winner Natalie Portman will next take on a Terrence Malick doubleheader: She’s cast in his next two movies, “Knight of the Cups” and “Lawless.” Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett are also signed for both movies; with Ryan Gosling and Rooney Mara set just for “Lawless.”
— Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson will team up again, for the first time since “Wedding Crashers,” for the comedy “Interns.” Written by Vaughn, the film is about a pair of downsized guys who became interns at a dot-com. OK then, but I think it’d be more fun if they crashed the “Bridesmaids” wedding, don’t you?
