Al Pacino has been signed to play surrealist painter/artist Salvador Dali in Dali & I: The Surreal Story, an account of the end of the painter's career and life. The film will begin shooting in June, and is being directed by Andrew Niccol, the man who was responsible for Pacino in Simone.
This could either be a brilliant move, or a complete disaster, depending on which Pacino you get. The man is my favorite actor on Earth, but even so, he occasionally makes mistakes. The Devil's Advocate comes leaping to mind.
