Washington, Dec 13 (ANI): Spaniard filmmaker Pedro Almodovar will be wearing his directors cap for Broken Hugs, which stars Penelope Cruz.

The 58-year-old director made the announcement on Dec 11 at the presentation of EMI’s “B.S.O. Almodovar,” a CD compilation of 29 songs from the director’s films.

According to Almodovar, Broken Hugs will feature Cruz, Blanca Portillo and Lluis Homar.

“As for Penelope, I’m going to delve into one of her little-known facets,” Hollywood Reporter quoted Almodovar, as saying.

“This won’t be a comedy, but humour will be present, he added.

The script, which he said is his longest ever, tells of a crazy love.

Almodovar said that in January he would start preparation on the film. (ANI)
