The European royal, whose late mother was movie icon Grace Kelly, is reportedly in talks with moviemaker Garry Marshall over a film project tentatively titled Royal Ice - about his efforts to lead a bobsleigh team.

Albert tells the idea came from Mark Thomas, a screenwriter and member of Monaco's original 1988 bobsleigh team, but he is on board the film, which is planned for cinemas in 2018.

Asked about who will play him in the film, the royal says, "I haven't really given that much thought, though I hope it would be someone reasonably athletic.

"Maybe Vin Diesel or someone else who is slightly balding?"
