Almodovar, Cruz reteaming


MADRID -- Pedro Almodovar's next film will be titled "El Piel Que Habito" (The Skin I Live In) and the cast will include Penelope Cruz, according to an interview published Monday in the Spanish press.

Almodovar announced plans for "Habito," expected to be a departure from his traditional style, in Warsaw following success for "Volver" at the European Film Awards on Saturday night.

"I'm in the midst of a change. My next film will be totally different from the previous 16," Almodovar said in the interview with Spanish daily El Pais. "It's a very tough story about revenge. It has nothing to do with 'Volver' or my life."

No one was available at Almodovar's production house El Deseo to confirm the details Monday.
