We told you last month that Pedro Almodovar planned to complete his The Skin I Live In follow-up, a witty comedy entitled I’m So Excited, aka Los Amantes Pasajeros, next month.
Well, the first trailer for director’s upcoming film set almost entirely on a plane, has arrived and it looks great.
Almodovar is re-teaming with Volver and The Skin I Live In cinematographer Jose Luis Alcaine making it his sixth collaboration with Alcaine, this time to his comedic roots. I’m So Excited is actually an ensemble musical-comedy in the style and same realm as his earlier pictures.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, but it’s said to be set against a plane accident with various characters fearing for their lives and confessing their inner secrets, sometimes through song.
The cast includes Almodovar regulars Penelope Cruz and Antonio Banderas — a cameo appearances, as well as Paz Vega, Javier Cámara, Cecilia Roth, Lola Dueñas, Raul Arévalo, Carlos Areces, Antonio de la Torre, Hugo Silva, Willy Toledo, Miguel Ángel Silvestre, Blanca Suárez, José Luis Torrijo, José María Yazpik, and Laya Martí.
Written and directed by Almodovar, I’m So Excited will make its theatrical premiere in Spain on March 8th, 2013, while U.S. release will follow, starting November 22nd, 2013.
