The biopic Grace of Monaco will no longer be hitting theaters this March, and it’s unclear when, exactly, we’ll be able to see it.  The Weinstein Company pulled director Olivier Dahan’s (La Vie en Rose) Nicole Kidman-fronted portrait of Grace Kelly from its scheduled November release last fall, noting that the film wasn’t yet finished, but Dahan was singing a different tune.  The filmmaker said that the film was, in fact, finished, but in two different versions: his and Harvey Weinstein’s.  He called the situation “catastrophic” at the time, but it appears that the director and studio still have yet to hash out their issues, as The Weinstein Company has now pulled Grace of Monaco completely off its 2014 calendar, nixing its scheduled March 14th release date.  The studio will instead release the British dramedy One Chance on that weekend.

No official reason was given for the move, but THR reports that the film has yet to be delivered to the studio, making it impossible to begin a marketing campaign.  Hopefully we hear more soon. [Update: Variety reports that the movie will open this year's Cannes Film Festival, and so while it may not have theatrical release date, it will definitely have to be finished by May]
