Spanish actress Paz Vega has signed up for Olivier Dahan’s planned Grace Kelly biographical drama Grace of Monaco, according to Variety. The actress joins Nicole Kidman, who is already attached to play the iconic Kelly.
The film concentrates on the time when Monaco was in a conflict with France and Grace Kelly, who by then had given up acting and was the small country’s princess, worked to prevent a coup. Vega is set to be opera singer Maria Callas, who was having an affair with wealthy Aristotle Onassis at the time.
Olivier Dahan is directing from a script provided by Arash Amel. It isn’t clear when it might shoot.
