Kristen Stewart plays the late Princess of Wales in Pablo Larraín’s forthcoming film, titled 'Spencer'.
Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood has reportedly been tapped to score Spencer, a new movie about Princess Diana directed by Pablo Larraín and starring Kristen Stewart.
According to Indiewire, Spencer is set over the course of a weekend in December 1991, as Princess Diana spends Christmas with the royal family and ultimately decides to leave Prince Charles. The film is reportedly aiming for an autumn 2021 release, just prior to the 25th anniversary of Diana's tragic death in a car accident in August 2022.
Jonny Greenwood’s latest soundtrack albums, Phantom Thread and You Were Never Really Here, were released in 2018. Greenwood was nominated for an Academy Award for the former album. The following year, he launched classical music label Octatonic.
Pablo Larraín directed 2019’s Ema, which was scored by Nicolás Jaar. His last English-language film was the 2016 biopic Jackie, scored by Mica Levi.
Greenwood has been composing scores for nearly two decades, beginning with 2003’s Bodysong that doubles as his solo debut. He has also collaborated with Paul Thomas Anderson on many of his films, scoring 2007’s There Will Be Blood, 2012’s The Master and 2014’s Inherent Vice.
Since Radiohead released their most recent album, 2016’s A Moon Shaped Pool, its members have been busy working on individual projects. Thom Yorke released the solo LP Anima, and Ed O’Brien released his solo debut Earth in 2020. At the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, Radiohead began dropping weekly archival concerts on their YouTube channel from their newly launched digital archive. They auctioned off Yorke’s “Lotus Flower” hat for charity last autumn.
