The Weinstein Company has bumped its potential Oscar contender Grace of Monaco from its November 27, 2013 release date into an unspecified date in the spring of 2014. Insiders claim that the studio needs more time to complete the drama, which will now be positioned as more of a commercial entry instead of awards-season bait. Of course, the film could still be in contention for the 2014 awards season, although it will be more difficult with a spring release date.
Nicole Kidman stars as Hollywood icon Grace Kelly, who gave up her film career after marrying Monaco's Prince Rainier III (Tim Roth). The story also centers on how the starlet used her fame and influence to help solve a dispute between France and Monaco, as well as her marital problems and issues with her identity.
The move comes as somewhat of a surprise, given that TWC chairman Harvey Weinstein seemed rather excited about the film, »
Your first look at Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly, luminous movie star turned princess, is as regal and opulent as one would expect about a woman whose legacy has lived on many years after her death thanks to her place in history and singular sense of style.
Grace of Monaco, directed by Olivier Dahan from a script by Arash Amel, follows the former Hollywood pretty girl as she deals with issues both personal and political upon the looming French invasion of Monaco in the early '60s.
We hear Frank Langella's Father Francis Tucker via voice-over speak to her highness in grandiose terms, telling her that she is the fairytale and that history will remember her name and by virtue of this movie existing, he's not wrong.

Her pal Naomi Watts is not exactly be bathing in plaudits for her work in Diana, but Nicole Kidman will be hoping for better things from her turn as an iconic royal blonde in Grace Of Monaco. The film has now unveiled a short teaser trailer, and you can watch it below.The film is set between December 1961 and November 1962, when Grace Kelly (Kidman) maneuvered behind the scenes as Princess of Monaco to save her nation from political turmoil.Written by Arash Amel, it finds Kelly – already ensconced as the wife of Prince Rainier III (Tim Roth) – called in to help save the nation from an escalating problem about its tax status, as then-president Charles de Gaulle handed her hubby a six-month deadline to reform the place’s financial laws. So not quite a hot button, high-tension thriller, but more a look at how a woman better known for her »
A first trailer for "Grace of Monaco," starring Nicole Kidman as actress-turned-princess Grace Kelly, has landed. The film, helmed by Olivier Dahan ("La Vie en Rose") and penned by Arash Amel ("Erased"), is set in the early 1960s and focuses on Kelly's marriage to Monaco's Prince Rainier III (played here by Tim Roth); meanwhile, a political dispute is in full force between the principality and France. Frank Langella, Parker Posey, Derek Jacobi, Paz Vega and Milo Ventimiglia also star. The Weinsteins have the film slated for a November 27 stateside release, primed to enter the Oscar fray. (Royalty biopic "Diana," starring Naomi Watts as Princess Diana, also takes a bow this season, but with complete pans from early reviews, it doesn't have much hope for awards traction.) »

They don’t know who they be messin’ with. Alien orcs? Yes, alien orcs. Those are the bad guys Vin Diesel will be battling in his new movie “Soldiers of the Sun”, which you shouldn’t expect to see for a while. The guy has a ton on his plate now, so while he may have attached himself to the very cool sounding “Soldiers of the Sun” as both an actor and producer, it’ll be a while yet before this movie gets made. So what’s it about? Sun is set in a post-apocalyptic future and focuses on a squad of soldiers that searches for a fabled city of gold while on a tour of duty in Mexico, liberating it from an alien race known as Orcs. Maybe he can get some help from those midget guys from “Lord of the Rings”. They’re pretty good when it comes »

As he continues to dance just to the other side of official announcements about voicing a role on Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vin Diesel clearly plans to keep sci-fi in his future. He’ll next be on our screens in Riddick and has just attached himself to Arash Amel’s script Soldiers Of The Sun.Amel, who wrote upcoming Nicole Kidman film Grace Of Monaco, here tackles a very different subject, one that couldn’t be further away from a Grace Kelly biopic. Soldiers is set in a post-apocalyptic future where a squad of troopers is battling aliens who have taken over Mexico and, presumably other places on Earth.As they serve out their tour of duty, the soldiers catch wind of a fabled city of gold that the extra-terrestrials, known as Orcs, are occupying. So begins a battle to liberate the place and its riches. Universal has »
Vin Diesel seems to be very franchise oriented lately. He’s currently headlining the Fast and Furious films. The sixth entry in the series hit theatres in May and quickly out grossed the previous film. The seventh flick hits theatres next summer and it will supposedly be the final chapter in the series, but, lets be honest, if it continues the Ff trend of outdoing it’s predecessor, does anyone actually believe Fast Seven is the last time we’ll see the gang on the big screen?
This fall sees the release of the third film in Diesel’s Riddick franchise, and lets not forget about him voicing Groot in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Now The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Diesel has attached himself to another possible franchise at Universal (Ff and Riddick are also at Uni).
THR is reporting that Diesel is attached to star in Soldiers of the Sun. »
