Samuel Goldwyn Films has announced the acquisition of North American rights to Milos Forman's "Goya's Ghosts," produced by Saul Zaentz. The company is planning a Summer '07 release for the film, which stars Javier Bardem, Natalie Portman and Stellan Skarsgard. Written by Forman and Jean-Claude Carriere ("Birth," "Valmont") the film is described as being, "told through the eyes of celebrated Spanish painter Francisco Goya (played by Skarsgard), whose paintings are best known for both brutality and the colorful depictions of life during the Spanish Inquisition. The drama unfolds as Brother Lorenzo (Bardem), an enigmatic member of the powerful Spanish clergy, becomes infatuated with Goya's beautiful teenage muse, Ines (Portman). "Milos Forman and Saul Zaentz have created yet another beautiful and human story told against a fascinating period in history," said Samuel Goldwyn Jr. in a statement, "Their long collaboration has included 'One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest' and 'Amadeus' and we look forward to adding 'Goya's Ghosts' to that list of quality films."
