Director only ever had one real choice for his Grace of Monaco. A mature actress with strawberry-blonde coloring and the ability to project royal stature and classic Hollywood glamor all in one? That's a description of as much as Grace Kelly.
Grace of Monaco focuses on the late, great Grace Kelly in her post-acting days: she left show business at 27 to take on her royal duties after marrying Prince Rainier III of Monaco (to be played by ). The action is centered around a spat between Grace's husband and Charles de Gaulle at the beginning of the 1960s. Expect political tension in immaculate period fashions.

While 12 Years A Slave is expected to sweep the board at the Oscars, it looks like Grace of Monaco could be in with a chance of sneaking a golden statue or two. What do you think? And how fabulous does Nicole Kidman look in her finery?
Grace of Monaco hits theaters November 27, 2013.
