As Pedro Almodovar sculptures his latest film “The Skin I Live In” in hopes of finishing a cut in time for its inevitable première at Cannes, word has already surfaced of his follow-up plans.

According to several reports that have been circling for a while, Almodovar’s next project will be a biopic titled “Mina” about the life of the Italian singer of the same name. Based on a novel by Paolo Limiti -- who worked a lyricist for Mina -- the film is set to depict the life of talented singer who stirred up controversy when she had a child with a married man, forcing her to withdraw from the public eye in the late 1970s. Though early discussions of the picture circulated as far back as last May, Screen Daily has announced that the film will indeed be Almodovar's next feature.

Seems pretty straight forward for an Almodovar flick, but as with the rest of his films, expect the seasoned director to have more up his sleeve than one would imagine. "Mina" is expected to feature Almodavar veteran, Marisa Paredes (“All About My Mother,” “Talk to Her,” “The Skin I Live In”) in the lead as the controversial musician.

His current feature, “The Skin I Live In”, is expected to finish post-production in March with a release to follow in September, though, as mentioned above, the film will more than likely make its first splash in France come May. Anticipation is high on this one with Antonio Banderas back once again with the director that helped make him a star. You can check out some new pics from the the film below.
