While we’re right in the middle of awards season, it’s never too late to be thinking about next year’s Academy Awards. With the new film “Grace of Monaco” originally opening on March 14th, the Weinstein Company is planning to push the biopic for the Cannes Film Festival this May (via FirstShowing.net).
“The story of former Hollywood star Grace Kelly’s crisis of marriage and identity, during a political dispute between Monaco’s Prince Rainier III and France’s Charles De Gaulle, and a looming French invasion of Monaco in the early 1960s.”
“Grace of Monaco” stars Nicole Kidman, Milo Ventimiglia, Tim Roth, Parker Posey, Paz Vega, Frank Langella, Derek Jacobi, Geraldine Somerville, and Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Alfred Hitchcock. Arash Amel (Erased) wrote the film, while Olivier Dahan (La Vie en Rose) directed.
It’s unclear when “Grace of Monaco” will be released, but we’ll keep you posted.
