I think doom is a good word to describe the way this projected has gone.

I still think Naomi would have made a better Grace Kelly.

The royal family publicly disassociated themselves from the project based on the script, before it was even made.

So there's further issues with the final cut. Much as I agree that the film could turn out to be a traversty, every still I see makes me want to see it.

I don't think I'd waste my money to see this at the movies; if I have any interest in watching it, I'll wait for the DVD at the library. And if the library doesn't carry it....oh, well, guess I'll live!

Maybe it will be o.k. It might be an interesting movie. Maybe not accurate but interesting. I might see it.

I know when I first heard the initial vibes I was excited and then came the movie stills which looked fantastic,but it all seemed to fall apart after the movie trailer was released last autumn.

As per IMDb the release date is March 14

And when a film's release date is pushed back because of reshooting, you know that doesn't bode well!

If it was a good film with potential it would have been released by now. There was a lot of media attention during the filming and some of the film was shown at Cannes, then nothing. It must be a dud.

Various entertainment news outlets yesterday carried some news of the film's fate.
Combining what's in Wiki and The Playlist, the upshot is that "Grace of Monaco" is in limbo (or purgatory).

The film has been pulled from the Weinstein Co. release schedule.
To quote The Playlist: "And it gets worse. Apparently, Dahan [the film's French director] has yet to deliver the movie to the studio."
It concludes "the drama here is proving to be arguably more compelling than that of the actual film."

In response to the public crtiticism of the film by the Palais princier in January, Wiki quotes the director as declaiming "I am an artist."
Says it all really.

It's sounding so bad now that I'm almost intrigued to watch it if it's ever released! I'll just sit back with my popcorn and cringe at all the disastrous scenes.

They are going to test market it at Cannes before they give it a release date.

"Grace of Monaco" (release date unknown)

These contradictory announcements suggest there's a lot going on behind the scenes . I think it's no surprise and slightly distasteful to release the film at the Cannes Film Festival, not just because it's almost at the "back door" of the Grimaldi family who have made known they are upset with the film's account of Grace's life, but it also trades on Grace's associations with Cannes and the French Riviera.

Since it is a festival, the director/producers might be able to release it there even though the distributor won't release it to theatres. It might not be a contradictory announcement but a return shot from the director at the distributors who won't release it. The director disagrees with them and thinks it is a good movie; so it will be up to Cannes to decide with either the director or distributor proven right.
