City on a Hill is created by Chuck MacLean (Boston Strangler) and based on an original idea by Academy Award winner Ben Affleck.

Fresh off directing a pic about the Manson Family murders, Mary Harron has lined up her next project. The “American Psycho” director is taking on the life of surrealist artist Salvador Dali in biopic “Dali Land.” Deadline broke the news.
The film will center on Dali’s relationship with his wife and muse, Gala. “Set in New York and Spain in 1973, ‘Dali Land’ is told through the eyes of James, a young gallery assistant who helps Dali prepare for a big show,” the source details. “While James hopes to learn some of the secrets of great art from one of the 20th Century’s greatest painters, he instead falls down a rabbit hole of glittering parties, searing personal battles, and an art world awash with money and intrigue.”
