Cillian Murphy (Scarecrow in Batman Begins) is joining the cast of Dali & I: The Surreal Story, alongside Al Pacino. I guess the surreal part will be seeing Al Pacino play Salvador Dali.
The movie, which will span the 1960s-80s, follows the time in Dali's life when most of his great work was behind him and he became more flamboyant. Dali (Pacino) also developed a mentor-protege relationship with a young art dealer named Stan Lauryssens, who will be played by Murphy.
Well sure, most men become more flamboyant in their old age. I can still remember my grandfather mincing about the house, telling me to keep my feet off the davenport and asking me about my BMs. He's dead now, but sometimes I visit his grave, leave him flowers and tell him about my BMs. It's silly, really. Because I know he's still out there; watching over me, making sure I go BM. [via Hollywood Reporter]
