Today Deadline reported that this Dali Biopic is moving fast hiring Paige Cameron to do the screenplay. This years Oscar and Imagine Entertainment producer Brain Grazer and Anna Culp will over see the project as it goes into full blown production some time late this year, or more realistically 2013.
