The Weinstein Company Pulls GRACE OF MONACO from Release Schedule [UPDATED]

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]

    I’ve got a sneaky feeling this biopic is as disastrous as fellow Aussie Naomi Watts’ Diana; and they’re scrambling to get a decent cut together.

      I feel the same. I can’t help but shake the feeling that Grace of Monaco will be the same cheesy sentimental twaddle that Diana was. However, Grace of Monaco’s got Tim Roth, Frank Langella, and Derek Jacobi, so I’m willing to give it a try.

    The Weinsteins have a disputed cut of a movie that isn’t in sync with the director’s -NOOOO! I don’t believe it!

        Scream still hasn’t been seen in an unrated cut on DVD here in the States. Everyone though some other countries do have it.

        I know! I actually sprung a couple bucks for the Laserdisc since that’s the only(apparently) US release for the unrated cut. Not that much different, but the added gore in the beginning is pretty intense.

    we have Nicole Kidman to thank for bringing Grace Kelly back
    to the Cannes Film Festival where her fairy tale began in 1955

  • House M.D.

    Someone uses a gun in this movie, I’m sure that’s the reason. Or not.
