Is Rosamund Pike playing Princess Diana in Feud season 2?

File this one firmly under ‘rumour’, but casting buzz for the next season of Ryan Murphy’s Feud has begun to ignite, and Rosamund Pike has been mentioned as possibly starring in the anthology series.

This is particularly notable because of the season’s subject – Charles and Diana. While The Crown may be focusing more on the royal matriarch, Murphy is going straight for the controversy with a series focused on the pair’s troubled marriage.

While Pike is being talked about, presumably for Diana, Matthew Goode’s name is also being thrown about for Charles. The news comes from Production Weekly (via SpoilerTV), which shows both actors attached to star.

Production begins in London during May.
