The Weinstein Company picks up Nicole Kidman’s “Grace of Monaco”

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Weinstein Company has acquired domestic distribution rights to “Grace of Monaco” an upcoming biopic starring Nicole Kidman as Hollywood star-turned-princess Grace Kelly, TheWrap said.

Weinstein will release the film Dec. 27 in limited markets, just in time for it to qualify for the 2014 Academy Awards.

Arash Amel wrote the script for the film, which focuses on Kelly's marriage to Prince Rainier III of Monaco (played by Tim Roth) and a dispute between the prince and French leader Charles De Gaulle.

Kelly appeared in 11 films before that marriage, including "High Society," "To Catch a Thief" and Alfred Hitchock's "Rear Window" and "Dial M for Murder."

Olivier Dahan directed the biopic, which also features Frank Langella, Parker Posey and Paz Vega. Amel, Uday Chopra and Pierre-Ange Le Pogram produced the film, which TWC executives saw earlier this month in London.
