Another Sci-Fi Film From Pedro Almodovar? Yes, Please

By  · Published on November 20th, 2012

In all honesty, the headline here could be “Another Film From Pedro Almodovar? Yes, Please” because the man can make as many movies as he damned well pleases. However, there’s a certain thrill to learning that he might have another science fiction project in front of him, considering what he did with the (admittedly sci-fi-lite) The Skin I Live In.

According to Variety, the director is interested in going over-the-top for an Invasion of the Body Snatchers-inspired concept. So not only is there more sci-fi to come from Almodovar, there’s more body horror. Unsurprising, but still exciting.

It doesn’t appear that we’ll get to see it any time soon, but since he’s been averaging one film every 2–3 years (and with I’m So Excited coming in March of 2013), perhaps we’ll get to see his take on 1950s sci-fi by 2015. That gives him plenty of time to announce that Antonio Banderas is starring.
