Nicole Kidman is producing Monte Carlo with Denise Di Novi and Alison Greenspan. Kidman may also have a supporting role in the film.
Bezucha (The Family Stone) is set to start shooting in May. The film is going to be shot in Monaco, Budapest and Paris.
Bezucha wrote the script with Maria Maggenti. It focuses on a group of American women who bail on a disappointing no-frills holiday in Paris and then pose as wealthy women vacationing in Monaco.

Fox 2000 is producing Monte Carlo with Walden Media.
Monte Carlo was released July 1st, 2011 and stars Selena Gomez, Katie Cassidy, Leighton Meester, Cory Monteith, Andie MacDowell, Brett Cullen, Amanda Fairbank-Hynes, Joe Camp III. The film is directed by Thomas Bezucha.
