It is believed that the Princess of Wales was romantically-involved with Khan for a period of two years, shortly after her divorce from Prince Charles - and the film looks set to explore not only their romance, but Diana's reaction to the demise of the relationship.

According to The Guardian, the film - entitled Caught in Flight - is currently being touted to potential investors in America, and will be directed by German film-maker Oliver Hirschbiegel.

From what we can gather, the film won't exactly be portraying Diana in the most flattering of lights, with early descriptions reportedly describing her as "a lovestruck stalker."
