Pedro Almodovar‘s upcoming horror-and-other-weird-stuff movie The Skin That I Live In is going to be pretty creepy, if the teaser trailer released last week is any indication (which it is). In case you’re not in the know, it’s has something to do with a plastic surgeon played by Antonio Banderas and some kind of weird quasi-human female creature.

Anyway, these photos are going to be hauled away to Boredom Jail for being too interesting any time soon, but they do give you some idea of what the movie will look like, at least in its more subdued scenes. And there’s a shot of Almodovar behind the camera, looking a little like David Lynch. Yeah, I’m the guy at parties who’s always talking about which directors look like one another. (The Playlist)

McConaughey, Maguire, Efron, And Vergara Are All Gonna Get With ‘The Paperboy’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mcconaughey-maguire-efron-and-vergara-are-all-gonna-get-with-the-paperboy/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mcconaughey-maguire-efron-and-vergara-are-all-gonna-get-with-the-paperboy/#comments Fri, 13 May 2011 18:05:21 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=212012 Once again, Tobey Maguire is the least attractive star in a film.

As today’s casting news indicates, Pedro Almodovar can reel in the A-list even as a lowly producer. Matthew McConaughey, Tobey Maguire, Zac Efron, and Sophia Vergara have all enlisted for The Paperboy, an adaptation of a 1995 novel that follows a Miami reporter who investigates the incarceration of a death row inmate. Lee Daniels will be pulling director duty on this one.

Alomodovar’s capacity as only producer is somewhat surprising, given that he has worked with The Paperboy author Pet Dexter developing this project over the past decade. However, the project seems to be left in capable hands with Daniels, who has Precious and the upcoming Selma to his name.

The roles corresponding to the A-list actors have not been disclosed, but I think that McConaughey would make a good journalist, Tobey Maguire is a very convincing sex offender, Zac Efron would make a remarkable murder victim, and Sophia Vergara could be either a sultry Latina stripper or a down-on-her-luck, nude adult film actress.

In case it’s not clear, I’m not terribly familiar with the source material. (THR)

Pedro Almodovar is famous for making artful melodramas – but his latest is a different kind of beast. The Skin I Live In is a horror movie. More specifically, a mad scientist horror movie, and judging from the teaser, it’s going to be essential viewing for people who like getting creeped out.

The movie stars Antonio Banderas, a long way from Puss-in-Boots or the Nasonex bee. From what I can gather, he’s created some kind of humanoid creature who tries to escape, first through the door and then by threatening to commit suicide. Bring the kids!
