Pedro Almodovar will shoot a western with Ethan Hawke and Pedro Pascal this summer


“It could be my answer to Brokeback Mountain”, explains the director.

A Manual for Cleaning Womenwith Cate Blanchett in the main role, will not ultimately be the next project of Pedro Almodóvar. Before adapting Lucia Berlin’s book, the Spanish filmmaker will make a new short film, also in English. A 30-minute western titled Strange Way of Lifewhose two main roles will be held by Ethan Hawke and Pedro Pascal.

Last year, he had already used this format to The human voice, with Tilda Swinton. “It is very convenient for me. I feel more free to do things in English this way“, has entrusted the director to Indiewire, to whom he presented his new project exclusively. Filming will start very soon in Almeria and it will be produced by Yves Saint Laurent.

In Strange Way of Life (named after a song by Amalia Rodrigues), Ethan Hawke will play a sheriff, and Pedro Pascal a gunslinger. “One travels through the desert to find the other. There will be a clash between the two, but the story is above all intimate“, explains Almodovar to Indiewire. And by intimate we must undoubtedly understand romantic.

This could be my answer to Brokeback Mountain“, evokes Almodovar, who had almost directed the film, finally directed by Ang Lee. The opportunity for the Spanish filmmaker to explain his reluctance to work in Hollywood (he had also refused Sister Act !):

I think Ang Lee made a wonderful film, but I never believed they would give me complete freedom and independence to do whatever I wanted. Nobody ever told me that. I was told: ‘you can do whatever you want’, but I knew there were limits.

According to him, going to work in Hollywood when you’re a foreign director is generally a bad idea: “There are exceptions, like Yorgos Lanthimos or the Mexican friends (Alfonso Cuarón, Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu and Guillermo del Toro). But for all the others, it did not succeed at all. Even a director like John Woo. Its mix of action and thriller is perfect for Hollywood, and yet it didn’t survive it.”

This is why Almodovar works with Hollywood actors, but in El Deseo films, the production company he set up with his brother Augustin.
