Grace Of Monaco release date delayed until 2014
Grace Of Monaco release date has been delayed until 2014, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The movie was due for release in November 2013, making it eligible for next year’s Oscars.
In the film, Nicole Kidman plays Princess Grace of Monaco, formerly known as movie star Grace Kelly, during a crisis in her marriage to Prince Rainier III.
Director Olivier Dahan previously coaxed an Oscar-winning performance out of Marion Cotillard as Edith Piaf in La Vie En Rose. The new film co-stars Tim Roth, Frank Langella and Derek Jacobi.
The movie has already been screened at the Cannes Film Festival, where Nicole Kidman was serving on the festival jury.
But it has been met with some resistance by Prince Albert II of Monaco, who criticized the film for being historically inaccurate.
In a statement released earlier this year, Prince Albert and his sisters said Grace Of Monaco contained “major historical untruths and a series of purely fictional scenes”.
“The Princely family wishes to emphasize that this film is by no means a biopic,” the statement said.
