Nicole Kidman gets the honor of portraying Princess Grace Kelly in the upcoming film Grace of Monaco

Grace of Monaco follows Kelly's personal story against 1962 politics, focusing on a six month period in which the newly minted Princess of Monaco maneuvered behind the scenes in an effort to save the city-state from a coup.

The 44-year-old Aussie actress Nicole Kidman won the honor of portraying Princess Grace Kelly in the new film Grace of Monaco, according to variety. The Olivier Dahan-directed film is not actually a biopic, and the role could bring Nicole another Oscar. Dahan was behind La Vie en Rose, which won Marion Cottilard the Best Actress trophy in 2008 for her role as Edith Piaf.


It was said that "nearly every top actress in Hollywood" were racing to win the highly coveted role. Kidman herself hasn't closed her deal, but the Australian actress is already entering an advanced negotiation to portray the late Rear Window star.


Arash Amel has written the script, which appeared on the 2011 Black List and is said to be "generating awards buzz." Meanwhile, Pierre-Ange Le Pogam is fully financing the high-end feature, which cost a mere $15 million to produce.

The former wife of Tom Cruise will next be seen in Lee Daniels' The Paperboy, Chan-wook Park's Stoker, and Jonathan Teplitzky's The Railway Man.
