Since the Oscars haven’t completely faded my mind yet (give me another 12 hours or so), I’m immediately looking at the Oscar math of Nicole Kidman‘s upcoming Grace Kelly biopic, Grace of Monaco. You have an Oscar-winner playing an Oscar-winner, and if that isn’t enough, Deadline reports that Oscar-addict The Weinstein Company has picked up the film for distribution. The film takes place between December 1961 and November 1962, when Kelly maneuvered behind the scenes as Princess of Monaco to save her nation from political turmoil. The first images from the film have been released, but I would happily accept Kidman holding up a hastily hand-painted sign reading “Noms Pleeze”.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Paz Vega, Tim Roth, Frank Langella, Parker Posey, Milo Ventimiglia, and Derek Jacobi. Grace of Monaco currently doesn’t have a release date, but don’t be surprised to see it show up in the festival circuit this fall.
