Antonio Banderas is in final negotiations to play Salvador Dali in a new “Dali” biopic which will be directed by Simon West.
West has been working on the movie, which is being scripted by Jeremy Walters, since 2003.
The director will use a mixture of CGI and music to showcase the creative process of Salvador Dali.
“Dali” will focus on the surrealist artist’s time in America and his relationship with his wife, manager and muse, Gala.
The plan is for this movie to shoot in Spain and England in 2009.
At least two other Salvador Dali biopics are in the works.
Al Pacino is attached to play the artist in “Dali & I: The Surreal Story” directed by Andrew Niccol and “Twilight’s” Robert Pattinson stars as Dali in the upcoming “Little Ashes,” which chronicles the young life and loves of the painter as well as filmmaker Luis Bunuel and writer Federico Garcia Lorca.
