Grace of Monaco

Just about a year ago, coveted new script surfaced called Grace of Monaco, a story that follows Hollywood starlet Grace Kelly during a period in 1962 when the city-state of Monaco entered a heated dispute with France, which had grown tired of the principality being a tax haven. At the time she was married to Prince Rainier of Monaco (Tim Roth), and the film follows the time between December 1961 and November 1962 when Kelly spent six years as the monarch of a European nation. Nicole Kidman takes the lead as Kelly, and now we have a first look at her in full wardrobe. She may not look just like Kelly, but she looks great.

Photo removed at request of WHO Magazine, as it's from their photo shoot. Other set photos can still be seen at The Film Stage.

Olivier Dahan (La Vie en Rose) directs Grace of Monaco from a script by Arash Amel (who's writing the I Am Legend sequel). Nicole Kidman plays Grace Kelly in a story that follows the former Hollywood star's involvement with Monaco's Prince Rainier III and France's Charles De Gaulle dispute over tax laws in the early 1960s. Tim Roth plays the prince and the cast also includes Frank Langella, Paz Vega, Parker Posey and Milo Ventimiglia. The film is slated to be release sometime in 2014. Stay tuned for more information.

the film follows the time between December 1961 and November 1962 when Kelly spent six years as the monarch of a European nation - this sentence sounds a little bit weird or is it just me? 🙂

It is incorrect. Kelly didn't spend six years as a monarch, she spent 26 years as the Princess of Monaco before dying in a car crash in 1982. The film, however, covers a six month period during which French president DeGualle and her husband Prince Rainier squabbled publicly over fiscal and political matters--and Grace appears to have been heavily involved in the background in some way. (Monaco is a principality neighboring France on the French Riviera).

Hollywood knows it all too well. She is not a box office draw.

Kidman in this shot does Kelly more than justice She if frankly much more attractive I know what they said about Kelly, but I never felt she was all that............

This isn't from the movie. It's from a photo shoot she did for WHO magazine in August.
