Director Almodovar slips into 'Skin'

Dec. 5, 2006 at 7:31 PM

MADRID, Dec. 5 (UPI) -- Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar has signed on to head up production on the dramatic film, "The Skin I Live In."

The film, called "El Piel Que Habito" in the director's native tongue, will star actress Penelope Cruz and will vary greatly from the style Almodovar used in the film "Volver," The Hollywood Reporter said.

"I'm in the midst of a change. My next film will be totally different from the previous 16," the director explained. "It's a very tough story about revenge. It has nothing to do with 'Volver' or my life."

The announcement of the new film comes on the heels of Saturday's European Film Awards, where Almodovar won a best director award for "Volver."
