SHARE Diana was in negotiations over starring role in film

Princess Diana was negotiating before her death to star opposite Kevin Costner in a sequel to the movie "The Bodyguard," the New York Post reported Tuesday.

Diana would have played a role loosely based on her life, with Costner as the bodyguard she falls in love with, Costner told Premiere magazine. The Post obtained a copy of the story, which it said was to appear in the magazine's January issue.The actor told Premiere he had begun negotiating with the recently divorced princess more than a year ago, the Post said.

Costner said he received a second draft of the movie script just three days before Diana's Aug. 31 death in Paris. "The first 30 pages were totally her," he said. "It was dignified, sexy, smart, funny - and I couldn't finish. I stopped. It broke my heart."
