Once upon a time, a film princess became a real royal when she married the Prince of Monaco, and went on to save her Kingdom. Grace Kelly was known as ‘The Ice Princess’, beloved for her Oscar-winning films and unprecedented grace. And so she will once again be influencing the movie world with an upcoming film exploring six months of her life.
It’s still unknown who will play Grace Kelly in the movie, which is set to open in September next year, close to the 30th anniversary of her fatal car crash.
The Arash Amel film, compared to The King’s Speech, will detail Princess Grace’s struggle to be accepted by the Monacan royals, and her behind-the-scenes role of saving the tax-haven principality from the grips of France. Monaco had always welcomed new companies into their tax-free country, causing France’s president to demand that Monacans pay taxes directly to France or else they would cut off the water and electricity supply. Grace Kelly quietly interceded, managing to cool the situation by inviting her husband’s pro-French, estranged sister to the principality.
