Milo Ventomiglia and Parker Posey are joining the cast of the Grace Kelly biopic, Grace Of Monaco.
Nicole Kidman is starring as the Hollywood icon and princess and Scream 3 actress Parker has signed up to play Madge Tivey-Faucon, Grace's scheming lady-in-waiting, Variety reports.
Heroes star Milo is in talks to play Grace's publicist Rupert Allan, who served as consul general for the principality of Monaco and who was made a Chevalier of the Order of Grimaldi in 1989 by Grace's husband Prince Rainier, in honour of his service.
Reservoir Dogs star Tim Roth is to play Monaco's Prince Rainier III in the biopic directed by La Vie En Rose filmmaker Olivier Dahan.
The film is set at a time when Oscar-winning actress and mother-of-two Grace has already been a princess for six years, when she was called upon to guide her husband as the reigning monarch and save Monaco, after issues broke out regarding its tax haven status.
Frank Langella will co-star as supportive priest Father Tucker and Spanish actress Paz Vega will play renowned opera singer Maria Callas, who, as Aristotle Onassis' girlfriend, became one of Grace's closest confidantes.
Production is due to start in France imminently, before moving to Belgium.
