AL PACINO IS TO PLAY SALVADOR DALI

Godfather of Surrealism?
Hi all,
I've just heard that Hollywood heavyweight Al Pacino is to play the great Surrealist painter Salvador Dali in a new film, which will begin shooting this summer. Reports in Variety suggest that 'Dali & I' will be directed by Andrew Niccol, who previously worked with Pacino on the film 'Simone'. The film is to be based on the Stan Lauryssen book 'Dali and I' which explored the latter years of the artist's life.
Since I’m a big fan of both Pacino and Dali the prospect of such a project does sound very intriguing. However, movie land is notoriously fickle and such projects can and do often fall or falter due to the Directors or Actors last minute change of heart. Let’s hope they make Pacino ‘an offer he can’t refuse!
Catch you later

Shirley,
thank you for your very kind words and insight to the drawings on my page. It's indeed the mood in an image that's very important, and the human face can cross between moods with the slightest movment, and to catch that moment is the prize.
I also think your work is great, you really have that special touch, I really like the one with the Elephants.
Pacino as Dali,
My God!
regards
John
