Pedro Almodovar Snatching Up Bodies in the Sci-Fi GenreDirector Pedro Almodovar (The Skin I Live In) is ready to broaden his filmmaking horizons by dabbling in the science fiction genre, and while we don’t even have a title yet, we do know which direction he’ll be heading in.

Variety reports that Almodovar is planning to direct a sci-fi movie inspired by his love of 1950s pics like Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

I am still young enough to make a science fiction movie. I have ideas for this genre,” the Spanish helmer said Sunday. “The way I would like to do it is present something impossible in a real, domestic way. One of the scripts on my desk is of that genre so I hope to make that.

He admitted he didn’t know how soon that would be. “I live with my stories for many years. I write more like a novelist than a screenwriter,” he said.

Almodovar was speaking at BAFTA in London, where he delivered the annual David Lean Lecture, in which leading filmmakers discuss the influences on their career.
