The 30-minute Western short film will be Almodovar’s answer to ‘Brokeback Mountain’. Hawke shared the image on his Instagram post with the caption “Golden hour is unreal in Spain. @PascalisPunk and I are wrapping production on #ExtrañaFormadeVida (#AStrangeWayOfLife). It’s been a dream to work with Pedro Almodóvar and his wonderful team. Apologies for my Spanish.”
According to IMDB, ‘A Strange Way Of Life’ plot follows “After twenty-five years Silva (Pedro Pascal) rides a horse across the desert to visit his friend Sheriff Jake (Ethan Hawke). They celebrate the meeting, but the next morning Jake tells him that the reason for his trip is not to go down the memory lane of their friendship.”
In a statement director, Almodóvar told about the story “to avoid giving too much away about the screenplay”. However, it appears to stick with a classic plot of the genre: “A man rides across the desert to Bitter Creek. He has come to visit Sheriff Jake. Twenty-five years ago, they worked as gunmen and they seem to be glad to meet up again, but the day after things take a different turn other than celebrating an old friendship.” (Via Screendaily)
Pedro Pascal recently joined the cast of Limited Series ‘My Dentist’s Murder Trial’ alongside David Harbour.
