Antonio Banderas has been spending a lot of time in the land Far, Far Away with his big green buddy SHREK. But have no fear, he’s back on the scene and below we have a first look at his upcoming film THE SKIN THAT I INHABIT. The film is based on the novel Mygale by Thierry Jonquet. The story follows a plastic surgeon Ledgard (Banderas) who is out for revenge against the man who raped his daughter. With the lust for revenge add in the fact that he keeps his wife locked up and forces her to commit sexual acts with strangers and you have a pretty twisted character study. The film will be directed by Pedro Almodóvar, best known for his films TALK TO HER, VOLVER and BROKEN EMBRACES.
THE SKIN THAT I INHABIT has already completed shooting and has recently been picked up by Sony Pictures Classics with no set domestic release date.
