Sony Pictures Classic has acquired North American rights to director Pedro Almodovar's The Skin That I Inhabit, which began production last month in Spain. Inspired by Thierry Jonquet's novel Mygale, the film is a gothic story of a father out for revenge following the death of his daughter. Antonio Banderas will star with Talk To Her's Elena Anaya and Marisa Paredes.

This is Almodovar's tenth collaboration with Sony Pictures Classics, who are confident that the film "promises not only to be Almodóvar at his most intriguing, but also at his very best.” Almodovar is also continuing his collaboration with cinematographer José Luis Alcaine (Volver, Bad Education) and composer Alberto Iglesias (Talk To Her, Volver).

The Skin That I Inhabit is set for a November 2011 release.
