Diana In Tiara

Wayfare Entertainment is still a relatively young production company with only three films under its belt (Sanctum, It’s Kind of a Funny Story and Ondine), and so far they haven’t made anything particularly dangerous. According to Deadline Hollywood, that may change.

The production house has picked up a spec script called Inquest which revisits Princess Diana’s tragic 1997 vehicular death by framing it as a potential political conspiracy and viewing it through the eyes of a private investigator hired to uncover the truth. The script comes from first-timer Sam Cohen (which is apparently a pen name for Josh Simon, a development executive who used to be at Disney).

No matter how polished, this project is undoubtedly going to cause some furor. Not only was Princess Diana beloved, her death was a modern touchstone that’s still felt by many. There were questions raised at the time, and like all modern, high-profile horrors, conspiracy theorists came out of the woodwork. To even appear to give those ideas credence will bother more than a few people, but it might just make for a thrilling plot. Wayfare might just develop a reputation after this one.
