Get ready for the ultimate Dali shot

Biopic to be lensed with 3-D cameras

Get ready for melting clocks … in 3-D.

Showing a bit of the flair for which Salvador Dali was famous, the producers of a Dali biopic proclaimed at Cannes that they plan to shoot the entire film with Panavision digital 3-D cameras.

“Dali was crazy about 3-D films when they started in the 1950s,” notes writer/director Philippe Mora. “This is the film spectacle Dali would want you to see.”

Producer Peter Rawley adds, “This film will put you inside the extraordinary surrealist vision for the first time.”

Mora and Rawley are searching for thesps to play Dali from age 20 to 80. They’re hoping to begin shooting in the fall and are looking for European co-production partners, particularly in Spain, France and the U.K.

The 3-D enhancement could give “Dali” something to distinguish itself from another Dali biopic. “Dali & I: The Surreal Story” will explore the painter’s relationship with art dealer Stan Lauryssen.

No 3-D there, but it does have its own calling card: Al Pacino as its star.
