While Harvey Weinstein's battle with "Snowpiercer" director Bong Joon-Ho has nabbed the headlines, you may forgotten about another fight he's been having, with another foreign director: Olivier Dahan. Viewed early as a potential Oscar hopeful, "Grace Of Monaco" was pushed from a fall date to this spring, and not long after, word emerged that the director and Weinstein, were butting heads over the cut of the movie. And it seems they haven't found a solution.

Grace Of Monaco Nicole Kidman

While Harvey Weinstein's battle with "Snowpiercer" director Bong Joon-Ho has nabbed the headlines, you may forgotten about another fight he's been having, with another foreign director: Olivier Dahan. Viewed early as a potential Oscar hopeful, "Grace Of Monaco" was pushed from a fall date to this spring, and not long after, word emerged that the director and Weinstein were butting heads over the cut of the movie. And it seems they haven't found a solution.

THR reports that "Grace Of Monaco" starring Nicole Kidman has been yanked from its March 14th date, with no new schedule for the movie given. And it gets worse. Apparently, Dahan has yet to deliver the movie to the studio. Back in October, the director called the Harv's desired changes to his movie "catastrophic," complaining that the producer/honcho wants a "sanitized" and "Hollywood" friendly version of his film. However, "insiders" claim Weinstein only gave notes and has no creative control on the movie. But of course, that hasn't stopped the Harv before. (And it should be noted that Dahan has also said the first teaser for the movie was cut without his input).

So, we'll see who prevails in the latest arm wrestling match between Harv and a director, but the drama here is proving to be arguably more compelling than that of the actual film.
