MUMBAI: Yash Raj Films (YRF) Entertainment has partnered with French filmmaker Pierre-Ange Le Pogam's company Stone Angels to produce and finance 'Grace of Monaco' that stars Nicole Kidman.
Directed by Olivier Dahan, 'Grace of Monaco' is a historical drama. The production work on the film will begin this fall in southern France.
YRF Entertainment CEO Uday Chopra said, "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."
YRF's Jonathan Reiman will be the executive producer of the film along with the film's writer, Arash Amel.
The 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.
"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," Le Pogam 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."
