Nicole Kidman looks stunningly beautiful in this first-look image from Grace of Monaco. The actress portrays model-turned-actress-turned-princess Grace Kelly in French director Olivier Dahan's flick which follows Kelly after her marriage to Prince Rainier and her efforts to save her adopted city-state from a coup.
Jessica Chastain, Emily Blunt, Charlize Theron, Reese Witherspoon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Rosamund Pike, Amy Adams, January Jones and Elizabeth Banks were among those considered to play Grace Kelly. I still see Kidman in the pic but she’s gorgeous none-the-less.
The story of former Hollywood star Grace Kelly's involvement with Monaco's Prince Rainier III and France's Charles De Gaulle and their dispute over tax laws in the early 1960s.
The ensemble cast includes Tim Roth as Rainer, Paz Vega as Maria Callas, Robert Lindsey as Aristotle Onassis, Parker Posey as Madge Tivey-Faucon (whom Variety called a “scheming social climber), Frank Langella as Fr. Francis Tucker and Roger Ashton-Griffiths in yet another portrayal of Alfred Hitchcock. The script was written by Arash Amel and was included in the 2011 Black List of one of the best unproduced projects in Hollywood.
Grace of Monaco won’t hit theaters until 2014, so this really is the barest of teases. Expect much more to come.
