Kristen Stewart’s Princess Diana biopic Spencer has finally confirmed its release date.
Directed by Jackie’s Pablo Larrain, and written by Peaky Blinders scribe Steven Knight, the film will arrive in US cinemas on Friday, November 5. For now, it remains unclear when it’ll come out in the UK.
Spencer reportedly take place across the course of three days, and follows Diana, husband Prince Charles and the rest of the Royal family as they spend Christmas at Sandringham Estate in December 1991.
Stuck in a marriage that has “long since grown cold,” according to the official synopsis, the pair try their best to quell rumours of affairs and divorce in order to enjoy the holiday. But “eating and drinking, shooting and hunting” aren’t the only things on the cards this festive season.
Poldark actor Jack Farthing is on board as the Prince of Wales, while Thomas Douglas plays Diana’s father John Spencer, Olga Hellsing is set to portray Sarah Ferguson, and Once Upon A Time‘s Amy Manson will appear as Anne Boleyn.
Timothy Spall, Sally Hawkins and Sean Harris round out the cast, though their roles have yet to be revealed.
“Spencer is a dive inside an emotional imagining of who Diana was at a pivotal turning point in her life,” Stewart said of the drama back in January.
“It is a physical assertion of the sum of her parts, which starts with her given name; Spencer. It is a harrowing effort for her to return to herself, as Diana strives to hold onto what the name Spencer means to her.”
Spencer will premiere in US cinemas on November 5, 2021. A UK release date is yet to be confirmed.
