Cinecast: Kidman Channels Grace Kelly, Uma Joins Von Trier Film

Joel Kinnaman as RoboCop+ Photos of Nicole Kidman getting into character as Grace Kelly have been released. Kidman will portray the Hollywood starlet-turned-royalty in the biopic Grace of Monaco, set in 1962. Not surprisingly, she looks as effortlessly chic and classy as the late Oscar winner.

+ The Killing star Joel Kinnaman was snapped up in Toronto while filming scenes for the upcoming remake of RoboCop, which sees him starring as the eponymous character.

+ The intriguing dynamic between Alfred Hitchcock and his wife Alma is on display in the new trailer for Sacha Gervasi's Hitchcock. One can easily see from the clips that both Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren are clear Oscar contenders with their potrayals of the married couple.

+ Uma Thurman is the latest actress cast in Lars von Trier's controversial Nymphomaniac. There is no word yet as to who she will play in the film, which marks her first collaboration with the Danish auteur.

+ Beyonce has dropped out of Clint Eastwood's remake of A Star is Born. The reason? Scheduling issues.

+ While he may have lost his gig directing the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman, Rupert Sanders is reportedly in talks to direct a Van Helsing film starring Tom Cruise.

+ Wes Anderson has cast Ralph Fiennes in his latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, as a psychic concierge. Sounds about right.
