Ben Kingsley is set to star as Salvador Dali and “Phantom Thread” scene-stealer Lesley Manville as his wife Gala in “American Psycho” director Mary Harron’s feature biopic “Dali Land”.
The story charts the unusual marriage of the surrealist artist and his domineering wife and muse. Also onboard are Tim Roth as Dali’s confidant Captain Moore, and Frank Dillane as a young gallery assistant.
The story is told through the eyes of the young assistant he helps Dali prepare for a big show in 1973. Filming begins in Canada and Spain in November.
