Nicole as Grace?

Have you heard about the upcoming film with Nicole Kidman playing Grace Kelly? The film will cover her years married to Prince Ranier III, who will be played by Tim Roth.

imageOthers in the film are Parker Posey, Paz Vega, Frank Langella and Derek Jacobi in the supporting cast, and Robert Lindsay as Aristotle Onassis and Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Alfred Hitchcock.

  2. Tim Roth as Prince Rainier, what a strange choice?

    1. I always think of Rainier as older, don't you?

  3. The problem with choosing an established actress is that we will see nicole kidman instead of grace kelly - i would have thought a completely unknown actress would be better - there surely is a huge pool of talent out there to choose from. Otherwise Betty from Mad Men is physically much more Grace than NK. But NK is a good actress so she may prove me wrong!

    1. I was thinking they should have gone with an unknown, too!

  7. Charlize Theron would have been a good choice too, imho.

  8. I think Nicole Kidman will be able to play the part but as others have said, not too sure about Tim Roth.

  9. Charlize Theron, I vote for her, she is as beautiful as Grace, or for an unknown. There are so many lovely fabulous actresses who no one has ever heard of.

    no to Kidman, she's kind of stiff, and is better as the villain or tormented person.

  12. Tim Roth as Prince Rainier???? NK may work but wish they would cast an unknown or someone who is not such
    a strong actress. As the earlier comment said, we will see NK not Grace Kelly. Definitely want to see the movie.

  13. Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly is something to look forward to. They're both stunningly beautiful women. I think Kidman is talented enough to make us forget we're looking at Nicole Kidman, at least that's my hope.

    1. NK has done some amazing work, but I think that she's been overshadowed by her image.

  14. With this image, I can certainly see Nicole playing Grace,
    If the story line in the film is as intriguing as her life, and she acts well.....

  15. This is a tough one. I would love to think NK can pull it off, but that is one tough role to tackle, for anyone. (The Tim Roth thing continues to be a puzzler.)

  16. Okay, I'm going to be unpopular here. Nicole Kidman is ten years too old for the part. The movie takes place when Grace Kelly was 33-36 years old, and Nicole Kidman is 46. I know she looks great and all that, but she's no Grace Kelly (they, admittedly, broke the mold on that one). I second the vote for January Jones. She's the right age and she looks a lot more like Kelly than Kidman does. By the way, I once sat next to Princess Grace at a dinner party shortly before she died, and found her to be lovely and amusing, in a reserved and slightly sad way. Reggie
