Nicole Kidman to play Grace Kelly in Grace of Monaco

Nicole Kidman is in talks to play Grace Kelly in Grace of Monaco. The movie will focus on six months of the princess' life in 1962, when she was involved in a dispute with France.

Olivier Dahan, who directed La Vie en Rose, is directing Grace of Monaco, Pierre-Ange Le Pogam is producing and Arash Amel is writing.

Grace of Monaco will highlight the period when France and Monaco were in conflict over Monaco's status as a tax haven. Kelly was very instrumental in the crisis.

Nearly every top actress in Hollywood chased the demanding yet coveted role, Variety said.

Kidman won an Oscar for her role as author Virginia Woolf in The Hours.
