Almodovar Announces “Silencio” Film

Beloved filmmaker Pedro Almodovar (“Volver,” “The Skin I Live In”) has announced that his next film will be a female-focused, hard-hitting drama named “Silencio”.

Almodovar won’t go into details about the film’s plot, but does say the title describes “the principal element that drives the worst things that happen to the main female protagonist”.

The screenplay is complete and production is slated to begin in April around various locations in Spain including Madrid. Almodovar says casting on the project will be complicated as the roles he’s written don’t quite work with his usual group of go to actresses.
