Equal acting partner for Al Pacino in biographical flick "Dali & I: The Surreal Story" is eventually found. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Golden Globes-nominee Cillian Murphy has already been signed to join the veteran actor in the cast.

Based on Stan Lauryssens’ autobiographical book of the same name, pic, which will span the 1960s-80s, follows the time in the life of famed painter Salvador Dali when most of his great work was behind him and he became more flamboyant. Murphy is billed to play Lauryssens, an art dealer whom Pacino’s Dali developed a mentor-protege relationship with.

Assigned to direct is Andrew Niccol with production start pushed back to early 2008 on location in Spain and New York. David O. Sacks, Daniel Brunt, and Michael R. Newman are all producing for Room 9 Entertainment, which originally obtained "Dali" as a spec written by John Salvati that Niccol later rewrote.
