GRACE OF MONACO, Starring Nicole Kidman, to Premiere on Lifetime This May

According to Variety, Nicole Kidman's Grace Kelly biopic GRACE OF MONACO will not be heading to U.S. theaters and is hopping straight to Lifetime. The film will air on May 25, 2015.

Kidman stars as beloved movie star and real-life princess Grace Kelly in the upcoming biopic, helmed by French director Olivier Dahan. Also in the cast are Tim Roth (ARBITRAGE, PULP FICTION, RESEVOIR DOGS) as Grace's husband, Prince Rainier III. The film also features Milo Ventimiglia, Frank Langella, Parker Posey, Paz Vega, and Derek Jacobi in supporting roles.

GRACE OF MONACO portrays a period in the life of American Actress Grace Kelly (played by Nicole Kidman) who became Princess Grace of Monaco when she married Prince Rainier III (Tim Roth) in 1956, in what was dubbed "the marriage of the century". An Oscar winner, she was already a huge film star, having worked with the very greatest (John Ford, Alfred Hitchcock, Fred Zinnemann) and acclaimed the world over. Six years later, amid occasional difficulties in fulfilling her role, she was invited back to Hollywood by Alfred Hitchcock, to play in his new film Marnie. At the time, France was threatening to tax and even annex Monaco, the tiny Principality whose monarch Kelly had become. Was she still an actress? Was she really Princess of Monaco?

The film opened last year's Festival de Cannes. A Stone Angels and YRF Entertainment production. Co-production by TF1 Films Productions, Gaumont, Lucky Red, OD Shots, Ufilm, in association with Silver Reel - Ufund. Distribution in France: Gaumont. Internationales Sales: Lotus Entertainment.
