Neon has set an exclusive theatrical November 5 release date for its awards contender and upcoming Venice world premiere Spencer from Pablo Larraín starring Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana.
Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders, Eastern Promises, Locke) wrote the screenplay to the drama, which imagines what might have happened at the Queen of England’s Sandringham Estate one Christmas when an unhappy Diana spends the holiday with the family and contemplates her next move in her marriage to Prince Charles.
Rounding out the key cast are Timothy Spall, Jack Farthing, Sean Harris and Sally Hawkins. Producers are Juan de Dios Larraín, Jonas Dornbach, Paul Webster, Janine Jackowski, and Maren Ade. Radiohead guitarist and composer Jonny Greenwood wrote the score.
Neon and Topic Studios present Spencer and the drama will receive its North American premiere at Toronto International Film Festival later in September.
