The Guardian: Almodovar and Cruz to join forces again

Pedro Almodovar and Penelope Cruz are set to join forces again, following their acclaimed collaboration on “Volver.” The Spanish director is to work on a vengeance drama entitled “La Piel Que Habito” (The Skin I Live In) and is considering Cruz for a starring role. The plot centres on a plastic surgeon who exacts revenge on the men who have raped her daughter. It is based on a 1995 novel entitled Mygale (Tarantula) by French crime writer Thierry Jonquet, although it will retain just one scene from the book. According to Variety, Almodovar was talking enthusiastically about the project at the European Film Awards in Warsaw at the weekend. However, the screenplay has yet to be finalised and so it is unclear when filming will begin. The Guardian reports.
