Pedro Almodovar Plans For A Sci-Fi Project, Images From His New Comedy

Pedro Almodovar appeared at BAFTA last night to present the annual David Lean Lecture, discussing his career and showing clips that had influenced him. On the subject of inspiration, he also admitted a love for science fiction, saying that he wants to tell a story  about “something impossible” but presented in “a real, domestic way.”

At the moment, he says:

One of the scripts on my desk is of that genre, so I hope to make that.

Though when he’ll get to it remains to be seen. He could yet spend years rewriting this thing, or procrastinating, or diverting his attentions elsewhere.

According to Variety, Almodovar’s preferred flavour of sci-fi is:

1950s pics like Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

As opposed to…? Space opera, I suppose.

I’d argue that Almodovar has already made a sci-fi picture with The Skin I Live In, which revolves around, simply, some fictional science. It’s something of a ‘mad professor’ piece and I guess that sees it filed more under horror than sci-fi in most people’s minds.

Almodovar is currently editing his next feature, I’m So Excited, a screwball comedy set almost entirely on a plane. Here are a series of stills and behind-the-scenes shots, courtesy of production company El Deseo’s Facebook.
