Kristen, who rose to popularity after she played the role of Bella Swan in the teen-vampire movie, “Twilight,” will soon portray the role of the iconic Princess of Wales.

Diana, who was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, perished in a tragic car crash that has shocked the world. Kristen will star in an upcoming movie that will focus on the breakdown of the marriage of Princess Diana to Prince Charles, Hollywood trade publication Deadline shared.

The movie is entitled “Spencer” and is going to be directed by Chilean Pablo Larrain. It will take place in the early 1990s when Diana decided to break up with Charles. Diana’s decision also removed her from the possibility of becoming Queen.

“When someone decides not to be the queen, and says, I’d rather go and be myself, it’s a big big decision, a fairy tale upside down,” Larrain said.

“How and why do you decide to do that? It’s a great universal story that can reach millions and millions of people, and that’s what we want to do. We want to make a movie that goes wide, connects with a worldwide audience that is interested in such a fascinating life,” he added.

Larrain said Kristen is perfect for the role of Princess Diana because she can be both mysterious and fragile.

“She can be very mysterious and very fragile and ultimately very strong as well, which is what we need. I think she’s going to do something stunning and intriguing at the same time,” he said.
