Pedro Almodovar Finds Second Lead on ‘The Brief Lovers’

Posted by , on April 13, 2012 at 9:16 pm 

Variety reports that Pedro Almodóvar has picked José María Yazpik (The Burning Plain) for the second lead on his next film, a semi-mysterious project entitled The Brief Lovers. You may recall that, back in February, we told you that the director would reunite with his Talk to Her star, Javier Cámara, on a project described as “a witty comedy, with very spicy dialogues and with a lot of fun and transgression” — and while this news doesn’t bring us any further plot details, it’s at least a further confirmation of the Spanish auteur’s future plans.

If there’s anything particularly significant about The Brief Lovers, it’d have to be the note that, for Almodóvar, this will end up being his first straight comedy in about two decades. Most of us will anticipate it simply because of the man working behind it all, but this (now) fresh angle for the man is my primary point of interest. With this suddenly interesting cast, though, I won’t struggle much to lend attention.

Is this a good choice for Almodóvar? Are you looking forward to whatever he has next?
