Filming is officially underway, and now the first photos have debuted online, giving us a look at Kidman as the Hollywood star, via Just Jared, as well a shot from a promo shoot before production began.
The film revolves around Kelly’s involvement behind the scenes with her husband, Prince Rainer III of Monaco, and the dispute with France’s Charles De Gaulle over tax laws in the early ’60s.
Tim Roth stars as Kidman’s husband, with Milo Ventimiglia, Parker Posey, Paz Vega, and Frank Langella completing the cast nicely.
Olivier Dahan (La Vie en rose) is behind the camera, directing from a script by Arash Amel (The Expatriate).
There’s no release date currently set, but with production underway, we’re expecting this to land somewhere between late 2013 and early 2014. If things go smoothly, a biopic like this could well be a contender this time next year, given the talent involved, so it’s certainly a project we’ll be looking forward to. For now, here are the first photos of Kidman on set, along with a publicity photo of her in character, just before production began. As usual, you can click to enlarge.
