Al Pacino is to play Salvador Dali in a new film which will begin shooting this summer.

Variety reports that 'Dali & I' will be directed by Andrew Niccol, who previously worked with Pacino on the film 'S1m0ne'.

The film is based on the Stan Lauryssen book 'Dali and I' and explored the latter years of the artist's life.

Shooting begins in New York and Spain in June.

I can't think of a movie more entertaining than one of an artist that I don't care about.

Variety reports that 'Dali & I' will be directed by Andrew Niccol, who previously worked with Pacino on the film 'S1m0ne'.

In following this trend, the film will be released as "D@1i & I".

Computer animation has forever ruined the concept behind that photo. Have you ever seen the "missed" takes (or is that mistakes)? They've been printed as well.

She was the original inspiration for Dali's famous drawing, not Freud. At least that's what her publicist says. < /s >
