What Problem? Olivier Dahan's 'Grace Of Monaco' Starring Nicole Kidman To Open The Cannes Film Festival

When reports surfaced last night that The Weinstein Company had yanked Olivier Dahan's "Grace Of Monaco" off the spring release schedule, with no word of a new date, we expected the worst. We figured it was another symptom following the director and Harvey Weinstein butting heads over the cut of the movie. But it seems they've solved those issues, as the movie is getting the kind of premiere that few filmmakers ever get the honor to have.

When reports surfaced last night that The Weinstein Company had yanked Olivier Dahan's "Grace Of Monaco" off the spring release schedule, with no word of a new date, we expected the worst. We figured it was another symptom following the director and Harvey Weinstein butting heads over the cut of the movie. But it seems they've solved those issues, as the movie is getting the kind of premiere that few filmmakers ever get the honor to have.

Organizers have selected the Nicole Kidman starring "Grace Of Monaco," as the opening film of the 67th Cannes Film Festival. Co-starring Tim Roth, Paz Vega, Parker Posey, Frank Langella and Milo Ventimiglia, the film the 1962 set story follows Grace Kelly, detailing her involvement with the dispute between Monaco's Prince Rainier III and France's Charles De Gaulle as the threat of invasion looms.

It's a bit of a full circle for Harvey Weinstein, who presented the first footage from the movie in a sizzle reel presentation on the Croisette last yea. As for when we'll see it? The big opening slot suggests Harv may think this is an awards season player (it was originally slated to drop last November), so perhaps this is first stop in a big festival run and Oscar campaign for the flick.
