Penelope Cruz is in talks to reteam with her Volver director, Pedro Almodovar. Penny has previously worked with him on All About My Mother and Live Flesh. Pedro’s new movie called La Piel Que Habito is based on a French novel MyGale about a plastic surgeon that takes revenge against his daughter’s rapist.
One of the producers said, “It’s 70 to 80 per cent to be Pedro’s next (project). But Pedro always worked on several ideas at the same time, and he has a second screenplay on the go as well.” He also said that the role he has in mind for Penny is much darker than any role she’s played before.
She was recently nominated for an Oscar and won Best Actress at the Goya Awards which is Spain’s version of the Oscars.
Penny needs to stick with Spanish films, because that’s what she does best. Has she even been in a successful American movie? Vanilla Sky? Sucked. Sahara? Sucked. Captain Corelli’s Mandolin? Sucked.
