Cannes buyers charmed by ‘Grace’

Inferno's racks up sales for Nicole Kidman-starrer

Cannes buyers have fallen under the spell of “Grace of Monaco,” Olivier Dahan’s drama toplining Nicole Kidman as thesp-turned-princess Grace Kelly.

Repped by L.A.-based shingle Inferno, “Grace of Monaco” pre-sold to Italy (Lucky Red), Australia (Entertainment One), Scandinavia (Scanbox), Germany (Square One), Latin America (Play Arte), Eastern Europe (Revolutionary Releasing) and Benelux (RVC).

“‘Grace’ has been very well received by buyers because they’ve been tracking the project since it’s been on the (Hollywood screenplay) Black List,” Inferno’s co-founder Jim Seibel tells Variety.

Seibel added, “‘Grace’ is on track to sell worldwide by the end of the market — the few remaining territories, including Spain, U.K. and Canada, are expected to be closed in the coming days.”

Dahan is best known for helming “La Vie en Rose,” the Edith Piaf biopic that earned Marion Cotillard an Oscar.

The 1962-set “Grace,” which is penned by Brit screenwriter Arash Amel, is produced by Pierre-Ange Le Pogam’s Stone Angels. The Gallic outfit is also producing Inferno-repped “Maggie,” Henry Hobson’s upscale genre pic based on John Scott 3’s script.
