Callas shoots a wicked side-eye at impostors. December's Tatler, covered by Princess Grace of Monaco on her thirtieth death anniversary year, delves into the Grace of Monaco movie slated for a March 2014 roll-out.
Grace Kelly -- that icily-cool, Hollywood-icon-turned-princess in the great American Cinderella story -- had a prince in her pocket and legendary friends, including la Divina, who will be played by Paz Vega.
Grace of Monaco, with Nicole Kidman in the title role, Tim Roth as Rainier, Robert Lindsay as Aristotle Onassis, Paz Vega as his mistress Maria Callas and Parker Posey as Madge Tivey-Faucon, Grace’s lady-in-waiting.
Callas has been previously resurected by Faye Dunaway in (the mysteriously shelved) Master Class and by Fanny Ardant in Callas Forever. Upcoming films include Callas (last rumored to be played by either Anne Hathaway or Penélope Cruz) and Greek Fire (last rumored to be played by Eva Mendes). Now it's Vega's turn. Judging by the first (and only) photos of Vega-as-Callas that leaked online a year ago (below), we hope she can do impressions. Like Onassis' "mistress". She had an opera-minded experience with Carmen, at least.
