Al Pacino Is "Dali"



Al Pacino will play renowned Spanish painter Salvador Dali in Andrew Niccol's "Dali & I: The Surreal Story."

It's perfectly cast, really. Variety has delightfully reported that Al Pacino is positive to topline Room 9 Entertainment's dramatic feature "Dali & I: The Surreal Story" and will portray none other than the famed Spanish painter Salvador Dali.

With this inclusion, the project thereby marks the reunion between Pacino and director Andrew Niccol after their last collaboration in "S1m0ne." The film itself, based on Stan Lauryssen's book "Dali and I", depicts the latter period of Dali's life through the eyes of the author, a young art dealer who later establishes a mentor-protege relationship with the artist.

Production on the picture is scheduled to start in June using locations in New York and Spain. Apart from taking helming duties, Niccol is also on duty to re-write the script initially penned by John Salvati with David O. Sacks, Daniel Brunt, and Michael R. Newman all serving as producers.
