Reports of a Grace Kelly Biopic in the Works

posted by Nell Minow

Cinema Blend reports that Grace Kelly might be the subject of a new feature film.

Producer Pierre-Ange Le Pogam, who recently launched the Stone Angel production and financing company, has acquired the rights to Arash Amel’s spec script titled Grace of Monaco. It reportedly captures a snapshot of Kelly’s high-profile career, and parallels the Oscar winner’s life story with the politics of the time.

Kelly came from a well-off Philadelphia family.  Her uncle wrote a successful play, “Craig’s Wife.”  She modeled and became an overnight star after her first film, “High Noon,” opposite Gary Cooper.  She won an Oscar for her performance in “The Country Girl” where she delivered one of my all-time favorite lines to William Holden: “When I was a kid our village had an idiot. He used to think elephant tusks came from piano keys, but he had nothing on you.”  She was glamorous, beautiful, funny, and smart in Hitchcock classics “Rear Window” and “To Catch a Thief.”

And then she married royalty, Prince Rainier of Monaco.  It’s certainly a story made for the movies.  But who can play her?

    I’ll go with obvious here. How about Naomi Watts?

    And one perhaps not so obvious. How about Cherlize Theron?
