First Look: Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly in 'Grace of Monaco'

By: Derrick Deane on October 5, 2012 at 3:05PM Comments (6)

Nicole Kidman goes into to full royal lady mode in this first look pic from Grace of Monaco. Kidman portrays actress-turned-princess Grace Kelly in French director Olivier Dahan's drama, which follows Kelly's personal story when, in 1962, she worked behind the scenes to save her city-state from a coup.

Joining Kidman in the ensemble cast are Paz Vega, Parker Posey, Tim Roth and Frank Langella. The script was written by Arash Amel and was included in the 2011 Black List of one of the best unproduced projects in Hollywood and was said to be generating awards buzz.

Grace of Monaco isn't due in theaters until 2014. We've included an image of Kelly for comparison purposes. Does Nicole pull off the look?

    I think she looks great and should be convincing in the iconic role. I'll see it.

    Diane Lane would have been better.

    Oh man. I would have gone to see the movie if Kidman wasn't casted. She just isn't my cup of tea when it comes to favorite actors. I would have casted someone other than her for this role. How disappointing.

    That's a no...For this one they should've cast Gwyneth Paltrow, who also has the acting chops but bears a much closer resemblance to Kelly.
