NEW YORK, NY.- Antonio Banderas has confirmed that the Salvador Dali movie project has been delayed due to a dispute on the treatment of the script with the foundation that handles the Spanish painters affairs.
The actor from Malaga has assured that the financing for the film, which will be directed by British director Simon West, has been guaranteed, but what is delaying the film are the ideological problems with the Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation.
The dispute centers on the last part of the life of the controversial painter, in which, according to the movie, people took advantage exploiting the artists name when his mental health had decayed.
"They are not agreeing with part of the script and our director is a hard headed Briton who does not want to give in, said the actor when he met the press before receiving an award at the United Nations in New York.
West, who convinced Banderas to play the Catalonian painter, is known for directing movies such as Con Air (1997) and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001).
Banderas has said that the negotiations with the foundation are continuing, but that the delay that has caused the disagreement will make it impossible for him to start filming next year because of a schedule problem.
The actor has to participate in July in Woody Allens new film, which will be shot in London and then will have to travel to Los Angeles to film a thriller titled The Big Bang with Tony Krantz.
