A new documentary film about Princess Diana is in the works and will be released to mark the 25th anniversary of her death in 2022.

The film titled Diana will be directed by Ed Perkins and will use archival footage such as news reports, unseen footage and photos, reports Variety.

About the documentary, Perkins said in a statement to the publication: "Though we are telling a story which has been told and re-told many times, my aim is to reframe it for a modern audience and make it feel as fresh and relevant as it ever has.

"The idea of taking an archive-only approach will allow us to immerse audiences in the narrative as if it were being told in the present."
