After doubling his cast to two just yesterday, Pedro Almodovar's latest cinematic venture is now shaping up very quickly with four more actors added to the cast today. The helmer has set up a reunion with "Volver" star Lola Duenas and "All About My Mother" actress Cecilia Roth for the pic while Spanish comedians Carlos Areces ("Extraterrestrial") and Raul Arevalo are also on board.

Pedro Almodovar thrilled audiences late last year with the twisted "The Skin I Live In" so we didn't expect to hear from him so soon but earlier this year, his brother and regular collaborator Agustin Almodovar revealed on Spanish radio that they were plotting a "witty comedy, with very spicy dialogues and with a lot of fun and transgression" set for production this year. Whether Pedro liked it or not, his brother's loose lips also noted that "Bad Education" and "Talk To Her" star Javier Camara was on board to star in the pic as well. All exciting stuff.

After a slight blip in form with "Broken Embraces" (which, don't get us wrong, is strong, but perhaps not up to his usual quality), Pedro Almodovar returned in a big way last year with "The Skin I Live In," a nasty, puzzling little thriller that was one of the director's most satisfying works, with excellent performances from Antonio Banderas and Elena Ayana, among others. The director just picked up the BAFTA for Best Film Not In The English Language this past weekend, but as ever, he's not hanging around, with a new project already gearing up to shoot soon.
