This is one of those news items that are full of words like “probable” and “likely,” so it may not happen, but Penelope Cruz is expected to star in Pedro AlmodÃƒÂ³var’s next film, La Piel Que Habito.
According to Variety, the new film is significantly darker than Volver:
Based on Gallic author Thierry Jonquet’s 1995 novel Mygale, [the] long-mooted AlmodÃƒÂ³var project concerns a plastic surgeon who exacts a hideous revenge on his daughter’s rapists.
Whoa. Sorta like Last House on the Left, but with more of a plot. And in Spanish. And probably not banned in the UK. So, nothing like Last House on the Left.
