Filming starts for Grace of Monaco film starring Nicole Kidman

Filming has begun for a new film on the life of Grace Kelly entitled Grace of Monaco. Olivier Dahan’s new project sees Australian actress Nicole Kidman step into the starring role, and the cast and crew have been filming on the French Riviera this week, where the real life Grace Kelly lived.

The first few scenes of the biographical film were filmed on Tuesday 9th October in the Old Town of Menton, close to Monaco. Dahan, best known as the director of Edith Piaf’s biopic La Vie en Rose, chose Menton for filming because he believes it will be the most accurate setting for the film as the streets of the Principality have changed so much since Grace Kelly’s lifetime.

Later this week, filming moved to Grasse to start some indoor scenes and it looks like Nicole Kidman is in the area for a little while yet. Watch this space!
