Antonio Banderas To Carve Up The Skin I Live In

Antonio Banderas To Carve Up The Skin I Live InIt’s been twenty years since star Antonio Banderas worked with Pedro Almodovar in Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down, but the duo are about to reunite for an experiment in terror!

According to The Hollywood Reporter Antonio Banderas will star in Pedro Almodovar’s next film La Piel que Habito (literally translated: The Skin I Live In).

The film will shoot this summer over ten weeks in a studio in Spain and other unannounced locations. “The film will be a terror film, without screams or scares,” Almodovar told the Spanish daily El Pais. “It’s difficult to define, and although it comes close to the terror genre — something that appeals to me that I’ve never done — I won’t respect any of its rules. It’s the harshest film I’ve ever written, and Banderas’ character is brutal.

The Skin I Live In tells of a plastic surgeon’s revenge on the man who raped his daughter and is based on Thierry Jonquet’s novel Tarantula.
