The biopic Grace of Monaco has delayed its release date. The biopic is centered on the life of movie star Grace Kelly, played by Nicole Kidman, who marries Prince Ranier III of Monaco.
The film was originally set to release in November of 2013 but was moved until March 2014, and now has been moved once again to an unknown date. All the wishy-washy release date issues seem to be caused by editing arguments between producer Harvey Weinstein and director Oliver Dahan.
Dahan told Liberation, “It’s right to struggle, but when you confront an American distributor like Weinstein, not to name names, there is not much you can do. Either you say, ‘Go figure it out with your pile of shit’ or you brace yourself so the blackmail isn’t as violent … If I don’t sign, that’s where the out-and-out blackmail starts, but I could go that far. There are two versions of the film for now: mine and his … which I find catastrophic.”
This does not seem to be the first time that Weinstein has caused issues as he was the reason for the original delay saying that the movie was not ready for editing.
The final release date has not yet been set for the film.
