Soon "Goya's Ghosts" will haunt every theater in North America. The Milos Forman-directed drama has already been poised to come out this summer under Samuel Goldwyn Films banner following the company's acquisition to the film's distribution rights.
"'Ghosts' is a love story and a violent political story and a wonderful woman's story about a fascinating period in history and the effect of the Inquisition's lives as seen through the eyes of Goya," Samuel Goldwyn Jr., CEO of Samuel Goldwyn Films, remarked. "I wish every film we had was as good as this."
The first movie to come from Forman since his 1999 "Man on the Moon", "Ghosts" features Stellan Skarsgard as the titular character and Natalie Portman as his muse who attracts the attention of a cunning priest named Lorenzo, played by Javier Bardem. Forman also wrote the script alongside Jean-Claude Carriere with Saul Zaentz producing.
