Nicole Kidman’s ‘Grace of Monaco’ Pulled from U.S. Release

Grace of Monico

The Weinstein Co. has removed Nicole Kidman’s “Grace of Monaco” from its March 14 U.S. release date. No new date has been set.

TWC did not disclose why it pulled the film, but director Olivier Dahan has publicly clashed with the company over the biopic. He told French publication Libération that Harvey Weinstein wanted unreasonable cuts to his film that centers around a political dispute between Prince Rainier III and France’s Charles De Gaulle after the producer announced he was moving “Grace” out of the Nov. 27 slot because he didn’t feel it was ready.

Dahan directed from a screenplay by Arash Amel. Tim Roth, Paz Vega, Parker Posey, Frank Langella and Derek Jacobi also star.
