Grace Kelly’s Life To Be Told In Biopic

Cinema Blend reports that a Grace Kelly biopic could be coming soon. It will capture a snapshot of Kelly’s high-profile career, and parallels the Oscar winner’s life story with the politics of the time. Producer Pierre-Ange Le Pogam, who recently launched the Stone Angel production and financing company, has acquired the rights to Arash Amel’s spec script for the biopic titled Grace of Monaco.

The actress came from a well-off Philadelphia family. Her uncle wrote a successful play, “Craig’s Wife.” Grace modeled and became an overnight star after her first film, “High Noon,” opposite Gary Cooper.

The biopic will feature a time when she won an Oscar for her performance in “The Country Girl” where she delivered one of the all-time great lines to William Holden: “When I was a kid our village had an idiot. He used to think elephant tusks came from piano keys, but he had nothing on you.” She was glamorous, beautiful, funny, and smart in Hitchcock classics “Rear Window” and “To Catch a Thief.”

And then she married royalty, Prince Rainier of Monaco. It’s certainly a story made for the movies.

After embarking on an acting career in 1950, at the age of 20, Kelly appeared in New York City theatrical productions as well as in more than forty episodes of live drama productions broadcast during the early 1950s Golden Age of Television. The Grace Kelly biopic goes on to say that in October 1953, with the release of Mogambo, she became a movie star, a status confirmed in 1954 with a Golden Globe Award and Academy Award nomination as well as leading roles in five films, including The Country Girl.

Kelly retired from acting at 26 to enter upon her duties in Monaco. She and Prince Rainier had three children: Caroline, Albert, and Stephanie. She also retained her American roots, maintaining dual US and Monégasque citizenships.
