In other news another controversial Princess Diana movie titled ‘Unlawful Killing’ showing Prince Philip’s involvement in her death, has been scrapped. The Keith Allen directed documentary about the deaths of Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed in a Paris car crash in 1997, claimed that the royal was murdered in an establishment plot involving her father-in-law Prince Philip, but the film will not be released afterproducers failed to secure insurance to protect distributors against legal action. Lawyers had warned that there are 87 contentious allegations that would have to be cut before a British screening and although there were plans to show it in the US in August to coincide with the 15th anniversary of the deaths, the insurance was needed to protect the European offices of the distributors. A spokesman for the movie – which was screened at both the Cannes Film Festival in France and the Galway Film Festival in Ireland in 2011 – said: that the film has been sold all around the world. “But there was a specific form of insurance needed by the US distributors to cover them for their French and UK offices,” Contactmusic quoted the spokesman for the movie, as saying. “This proved impossible to secure. The film has been withdrawn in perpetuity,” the spokesman added. The 2.5-million-dollar film had been bankrolled by Dodi’s father Mohamed Al Fayed, who has always claimed that the deaths of the couple were not an accident.
