The Room Next Door (D: Almodovar) S: Tilda Swinton, Julianne Moore

Finally making his first English language feature! He's been trying to do this for a few years now.

Julianne Moore is set to star in “The Room Next Door,” the first full-length English-language feature from Spanish auteur Pedro Almodóvar.

Moore — whose casting was confirmed on Thursday by Almodóvar’s production company El Deseo on social media — joins Tilda Swinton in the film. Swinton previously starred in Almodovar’s 2021 short “The Human Voice.” Swinton’s casting, which Almodóvar’s first spoke about last year, was also confirmed by El Deseo.

The Instagram post said that the “The Room Next Door” is a “drama between a mother and daughter,” adding that it would be filmed in the spring in New York and Madrid. No other details about the plot or Moore and Swinton’s roles was revealed.

Representatives for Moore did not immediately respond to Variety‘s request for comment.

Almodóvar had previously stated that his shorts “The Human Voice” and “Strange Way of Life” — which are both in English — were merely warm-ups so he could grow accustomed to directing English-speaking actors. He had previously been attached to direct the English-language feature “A Manual for Cleaning Women,” which Cate Blanchett was due to produce and star in, but dropped out in 2022.

“The Room Next Door” marks Almodóvar’s first feature since 2021’s “Parallel Mothers,” which premiered in Venice. Penélope Cruz, who plays a single mother in a story that also involves the search for missing bodies of those murdered during the Spanish Civil War, would go on to win the festival’s Volpi Cup for best actress, while the film garnered eight Goya Award nominations.

One of the most recognized European directors with a huge international following, Almodóvar’s previous work includes “Talk to Her,” “The Skin I Live In,” “Pain and Glory,” and “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.”

I never realized he hadn't made an English language film before.

Re: The Room Next Door (D: Almodovar) S: Tilda Swinton, Julianne Moore

Following up a pair of English-language short films, Pedro Almodóvar has now embarked on shooting his English-language feature debut, The Room Next Door. Starring Julianne Moore, Tilda Swinton, John Turturro, and Alessandro Nivola, a new cast member has been added to the ensemble.

The Queen’s Gambit fan Almodóvar has cast Anya Taylor-Joy in the film, as confirmed by a cast listing in the Sony Pictures Classics section of the CinemaCon program guide. While her role hasn’t been specified, early reports indicated she could play Swinton’s daughter.

“The Room Next Door is about a very imperfect mother and her resentful daughter, who live separate lives because of a profound misunderstanding. Ingrid (played by Julianne Moore), a friend of the mother, will become the custodian to mother and daughter’s pain and bitterness. Martha, the mother (played by Tilda Swinton), is a war correspondent and Ingrid is an auto fiction novelist,” the director said.

He added, “The film talks about the unlimited cruelty of wars, the two different ways these two writers have of approaching and writing about reality, also about death, and how friendship and sexual pleasure can be the best allies to deal with horror. It also talks about the pleasure of waking up to birds bringing a new day at a house built on a natural reserve in New England, where the two friends live an extraordinary and awkwardly sweet situation.”
