I told you last week that an early screening of “Grace of Monaco” was a big hit. Nicole Kidman is said to be incandescent as Princess Grace (Kelly). But now I’ve confirmed that “Grace of Monaco” will hold until 2014. The main reason besides the movie still needing a musical score? The Weinstein Company simply has too many women in the Best Actress category. Meryl Streep from “August Osage County” and Judi Dench as “Philomena” are front runners already.
The company still has to figure out what to do with Julia Roberts from “AOC.” They will also have major campaigns for “The Butler” and “Mandela.” On top of that, let’s not forget that Cate Blanchett remains the original front runner for “Blue Jasmine.”
As for Nicole: not only will she be in lead for 2014-15 with “Grace.” But she also has the highly praised “Railway Man” with Colin Firth for fall 2014, just seen in Toronto.
Good things are worth waiting for! “Grace of Monaco” will be one of them!
