Following her friend Naomi Watts’ ill-fated role playing Princess Diana, could Nicole Kidman become the next victim of the princess curse, as her new film, Grace of Monaco, is now stuck in limbo?
While the film is scheduled to open the Cannes Film Festival on May 14, Kidman’s friend, Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, has effectively dropped the project, taking it off his company’s slate of north American releases, for this year after having a dispute with the movie’s director, Olivier Dahan, the Syndey Morning Herald reported.
The film has already been delayed twice. Dahan told a French newspaper last year that The Weinstein Company, which owns the film’s US distribution rights, demanded a “sanitised” final cut and referred to two versions of the film – "Harvey’s and mine". Apparently, Weinstein’s version chopped 22 minutes off Dahan’s version.
