Nicole Kidman in talks to play Grace Kelly

Nicole Kidman is reportedly very close to nabbing the lead role in the upcoming film Grace of Monaco, about acclaimed actress Grace Kelly who married Rainier III, Prince of Monaco, in 1956. The film will be set between the period of December 1961 and November 1962 when Kelly was called upon to help save her adopted city from a bitter battle with France. The project is being directed by Olivier Dahan, best known for his 2007 Oscar-winning film La vie en rose starring Marion Cotillard. Although Kidman has not yet signed the deal, she is expected to do so within the next few weeks.

    They look so alike! Sounds like a boring movie though

    Nicole Kidman is to old to play Grace Kelly.

    Nicole is only in her 40’s. Grace Kelly was in her 50’s when she died. The magic of Hollywood will kick in for the early years.
