Grace Jones In Films

Grace Jones movie may be in the works

Grace Jones, the former model, actor and Queen of the gay discos, has written a movie script about her life but she has a problem. Who can play her?


The six foot statuesque figure has made a fortune from her unique image. And trying to find a good actor to match Jones's infamous looks makes getting the story to the big screen more challenging.

Order these cult classics featuring Grace to delight in the frenzy and sizzle she has always brought to the silver screen:

Grace Jones stars in Vamp, get movie on DVD or VHS from Amazon.com Grace Jones is one of over dozen cult celebs in Pee-wee's Playhouse Christmas
Grace Jones, warrior bitch, in Conan the Barbarian In Boomerang, Grace Jones plays Strange', a stellar role with her the head cunt in charge of Eddie Murphy's perfume ad account

A story of Grace Jones would indeed make a great cinematic event. Born Grace Mendoza in Jamaica in 1952, her androgynous look first found her fame on the catwalks of Paris as a model.

The image combined with tribal beats came about when Island Records founder Chris Blackwell signed her to his record label. Although her first three albums gave her cult status, particularly in New York, it was 1980's 'Warm Leatherette' which introduced her to a more mainstream audience. That record featured covers of songs by Bryan Ferry (Love Is The Drug), The Pretenders (Private Life) and Tom Petty (Breakdown).

Her next album capitalized on the formula with a cover from The Police (Demolition Man) and Australia's own Vanda and Young (Walking In The Rain). The single from that album 'Pull Up To The Bumper" also gave her a bona-fide Top 40 hit.


Next came acting. Although she previously had a small role in Governor Arnie's 'Conan The Barbarian' it was her role as the villain May Day in the Bond movie 'A View To A Kill' when critics finally took serious notice.

So, back to the original question … who can play Grace Jones? The search continues.
