The actress/model joins Kidman and "La Vie En Rose" helmer Dahan in tackling Arash Amel's Black List script, which is set in 1962 when French prime minister Charles De Gaulle gave Monaco's Prince Rainer III, Kelly's husband, six months to change its laws that allowed it to become a tax haven. Kelly, however, managed to maneuver behind the scenes to avoid political troubles with the help of confidante Callas -- who, at the time, was partnered with shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, an advisor to Rainer III.
The casting marks a top year for Vega who has just completed work on Pedro Almodovar's comedy "I'm So Excited." No word just yet on when "Grace Of Monaco" will begin lensing but this smaller piece of casting surely suggests that it's moving forward steadily. [Variety]
