Andrew Niccol Tells "The Surreal Story"



New Zealand-born filmmaker Andrew Niccol is attached to direct "Dali & I: The Surreal Story" for Room 9 Entertainment.

Jumping into pure drama genre, Andrew Niccol has been appointed by Room 9 to direct its new project of "Dali & I: The Surreal Story", a big screen feature about Spanish surrealist painter Salvador Dali, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed.

An adaptation of Stan Lauryssens' autobiographical book "Dali and I", the picture will depict Dali's life through the eyes of Lauryssens and focus on the mentor-protege relationship between the two. Filming is expected to begin next spring with Niccol to also rewrite the script originally penned by John Salvati.

Niccol, who received Oscar nomination in 1999 for his writing work in "The Truman Show", initially developed a career as director for TV commercials in London before venturing into filmmaking in L.A. His directing credits include "Gattaca", "S1m0ne", and "Lord of War."
