Fans of Nicole Kidman and Grace Kelly were treated to new stills from the biopic Grace of Monaco this week. The images come just days after The Weinstein Company wrapped a deal to acquire the film over Oscar weekend, according to Deadline.
The picture will tell the story of how the famous princess transitioned from Hollywood to royalty during the ‘60s. Tim Roth plays Prince Rainier III. Milo Ventimiglia, Parker Posey and Frank Langella also star in the movie.
During a recent interview with Collider, Kidman, 45, talked about the “trepidation and fear” involved in playing the iconic figure.
“I watched a lot of her movies, I watched a lot of footage on her. There’s home videos and stuff like that,” she said.
“You have access to her, she’s sort of, even though she was from another era, she’s still so present.”
Grace of Monaco, directed by Olivier Dahan (La Vie En Rose), opens in 2014.
