Nicole Kidman and Paz Vega have already signed up for Olivier Dahan’s Grace Of Monaco, and now they’ve got a bit of male company, as Variety reports that Tim Roth and Frank Langella have signed up for the movie.
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. She worked to prevent a coup, after French president Charles de Gaulle handed Grace’s husband Crown Prince Rainier, a six-month deadline to reform Monaco’s financial laws and status as an extreme tax haven.
Roth will play the prince, while Langella is Father Tucker, the priest who set the couple up and became a close friend. Paz Vega recently signed up to play opera singer Maria Callas, who was having an affair with wealthy Aristotle Onassis at the time.
Dahan plan to film the movie this autumn in France.
