Almodovar adds one more to upcoming romantic comedy BRIEF LOVERS
Following THE SKIN I LIVE IN, director Pedro Almodovar couldn’t be having any greater of a revival. Never one to have really gone away, there was so much energy and inventiveness in his latest feature that SKIN looked like the most fun he’d had in years. And now, he’s setting up his follow-up.
Variety is reporting that Jose Maria Yazpik has joined the cast of the new film, a picture entitled THE BRIEF LOVERS, joining Javier Camara in the hotly anticipated project.
As far as the premise, not much is truly known about the film other than that it will be a pure comedy, Almodovar’s first since KIKA, twenty years ago. Personally, I can’t wait. I found SKIN to be an absolute revelation, a film that I honestly didn’t think Almodovar could make. Hopefully this will be as inspired a style and have as much heart SKIN did.
