London, Apr 7 (ANI): Nicole Kidman is reportedly being courted to play the role of actress Grace Kelly, who gave up her successful Hollywood career when she married Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956, at the age of 26.
'Grace of Monaco' featured on 2011's 'Black List' - which features the pick of Hollywood's favourite scripts to emerge in any given year.
It follows the actress-turned-princess and how she worked to save her adopted homeland, Monaco, in the early 1960s.
The film will be directed by Olivier Dahan, best known for 'La Vie en Rose'.
The Edith Piaf biopic won a best actress Oscar for Marion Cotillard in 2008.
According to Variety, there has been fierce competition among Hollywood's top stars to play the legendary actress, the BBC reported.
The film - written by Arash Amel - is set between December 1961 and November 1962 when the then mother of two "was called upon to save Monaco from an escalating situation regarding its standing as a tax haven." (ANI)
