Almodovar Reveals Cast And Crew For Scary-Pervy The Skin In Which I Live

Pedro Almodovar’s next film will be The Skin In Which I Live, set to start its eleven week shoot on Monday. The screenplay has been adapted from Thierry Jonquet’s novel Tarantula, originally Mygale.

I’ve not read the book, I’m afraid, but I do know that it’s quite full of… ‘deviant’ behaviour. Human Centipede deviant? Actually… I don’t know what to say about that, because I’d hate to spoil anything, but I think I’ve caught whiff of a rather audacious, moderately barmy twist that Almodovar is going to have a hard time hiding from viewers. Invisotext:

Think The Crying Game meets Planet of the Apes.

According to La Raza, Almodovar is teaming up with some regular collaborators both in front of and behind the camera. Google Translate gives me:

Starring Antonio Banderas, Elena Anaya [see those two above], Marisa Paredes, Jan Cornet, Roberto Alamo, the film also features the participation of Blanca Suárez, Eduard Fernández, José Luis Gómez, Bárbara Lennie, Susi Sánchez, Fernando Cayo and Teresa Manresa.

In addition to the reunion with Antonio Banderas, Marisa Paredes, Almodóvar returns to regular technical work with his filmography, like Jose Luis Alcaine as Director of Photography, José Salcedo as his loyal editor, and musician Alberto Iglesias essential.

I’m a huge fan of Almodovar and am completely head over heels with Bad Education to this day. He’s also a very fine director of tense thriller scenes, and I’m glad to see him tackling that kind of atmosphere and tone again.

I’ll be watching this one closely.

Note: coincidentally, this is my second story today to feature one of the stars of Room in Rome.
