Yash Raj Films (YRF) Entertainment US branch has announced to produce and finance the upcoming historical drama "Grace of Monaco" starring Hollywood star Nicole Kidman.
YRF Entertainment's CEO, Uday Chopra, has announced that they are partnering with French filmmaker Pierre-Ange Le Pogam's company Stone Angels for the film.
The film directed by Olivier Dahan will begin its production in the fall in South of France and Inferno is selling foreign rights to the film at the 65th Cannes Film Festival in France.
YRF's Jonathan Reiman will be the executive producer of the film along with the film's writer, Arash Amel.
"Grace of Monaco is the kind of movie that has a perfect blend of talent and sensibility that YRF Entertainment is proud to be a part of. We look forward to a great partnership with Olivier and Pierre-Ange," Chopra said in a statement.
The upcoming movie tells story of the late Princess Grace of Monaco, the former actress Grace Kelly (played by Kidman), and her efforts to make peace between her adopted country Monaco and France.
Le Pogam is also excited about the movie and partnership with Yash Raj Films.
"When I first read the script written by Arash Amel, I thought it was a great story to tell, with a lot of artistic, historical and emotional potential. This is why I invited Olivier Dahan to become the director because he has this artistic vision," he said.
"When Olivier and I met with Nicole Kidman for the first time, we felt immediately she was the right artist to portray Princess Grace. When I then met with Uday, I had the same feeling after our conversation. He was obviously the right partner because of his beautiful vision of the movie."
