Pedro Almodovar's “Standby Lovers” cast revealed

PanARMENIAN.Net - Pedro Almodovar's upcoming Amantes Pasajeros (Standby Lovers) will feature Lola Duenas (Volver), Javier Camara (Talk to Her) and Cecilia Roth (All About My Mother) in a "choral" cast, alongside well-known Spanish comedians Carlos Areces and Raul Arevalo and Mexican actor Jose Maria Yazpik, producer Agustin Almodovar announced.

The producer said Lovers will start shooting this summer in Madrid as a "pure comedy" in the old school of Almodovar, harkening back to the films "we did back in the '80s." Rumors swirling around the film indicate it is set on a plane and focuses on the relationships of passengers.

Almodovar production outfit El Deseo said it will look to release the film in the spring of 2013 in as many territories as possible at the same time to "to avoid piracy," The Hollywood Reporter said.
