Javier Bardem ("Before Night Falls") and Natalie Portman ("Closer") are in final talks to star in the bio-pic "Goya’s Ghosts," says Variety. The long-discussed cinematic biography of the famous Spanish artist Francisco Goya will be produced by Saul Zaentz ("The Mosquito Coast") and directed by Milos Forman ("Amadeus").Jean-Claude Carriere ("Birth") and Forman will be collaborating on the screenplay, which is "set in Spain in 1792, when Goya was the country’s most famous painter. A scandal arises when his teenage muse is framed for heresy by a manipulative monk who is one of the driving forces behind the Spanish Inquisition." Production is expected to get underway later this year.
