Nicole Kidman: Nicole Kidman As Grace Kelly

April 7, 2012 by staff 

Nicole Kidman: Nicole Kidman As Grace Kelly, The chance to play Grace Kelly in Grace Of Monaco has attracted every actress who fits the basic visual profile (plus a few who probably don’t, but might have been hoping to find a great makeup artist or borrow Andy Serkis’ performance capture suit), but they’ve all been beaten by one Nicole Kidman, who is now in negotiations to take on the role.

Producer Pierre-Ange Le Pogam grabbed Arash Amel’s hot script fresh off the Black List last year. And now Olivier Dahan will direct the tale of Kelly, focusing on her personal life amid the politics of the time.

Born in Philadelphia to a wealthy family whose patriarch was a former Olympic gold medal rower and ran a successful business, Kelly was bitten by the acting bug early and headed to New York to study her craft. She started working in live television in the early 1950s and broke onto the big screen in a small role in 1951′s Fourteen Hours.

Rising quickly to the top of many casting directors’ lists, she caught the eye of Gary Cooper, who picked her as his leading lady in High Noon. Her appeal was not lost on Alfred Hitchcck either, which led to roles in Dial M For Murder, To Catch A Thief and Rear Window. She also won an Oscar for her role in 1954′s The Country Girl.
