Alberto Iglesias will be reteaming with director Pedro Almodovar on the upcoming Spanish drama Silence (Silencio). The film stars Adriana Ugarte, Emma Suárez, Daniel Grao, Dario Grandinetti, Rossy de Palma, Inma Cuesta, Nathalie Poza and Pilar Castro. The movie spans 30 years in a woman’s life from a nostalgic 1985 when everything seems much better to 2015, when everything seems beyond repair and she is on the verge of madness. Almodovar is also writing the screenplay and the director’s brother Agustin is producing the project with Ester Garcia (Wild Tales). Iglesias is Almodovar’s regular musical collaborator and has previously composed the music for such films as Talk to Her, Volver and The Skin I Live In. Silence is set to start shooting in May and a release in 2016 is expected. (Screen Daily)
