Pedro Pascal and Ethan Hawke’s forthcoming romance movie Strange Way of Life has had a date set for its release, and fans thankfully won’t have to wait too long, as it’s set to hit cinemas in a matter of months.
The duo star in the Western short film, directed by Pedro Almodóvar, as two cowboys who are reunited after years apart, having previously worked together as hired gunmen.
But it isn't long before Silva realises that this trip involves a lot more than just a friendly visit.
Speaking about the project on Dua Lipa's podcast At Your Service, Almodóvar said: "This is a queer western in the sense that there are two men, and they love each other, and they behave in that situation in an opposite way.
"What I can tell you about the film is that it has a lot of the elements of the Western. It has the gunslinger. It has the ranch. It has the sheriff.
"But what it has that most Westerns don’t have is the kind of dialogue that I don’t think a Western film has ever captured between two men. And now I think I’m telling you too much."
On the official Cannes website, Almodóvar said he didn’t want to reveal too much about the plot ‘so as not to give away all the surprises of the script’.
He added: “The strange way of life referred in the title alludes to the famous fado by Amalia Rodrigues, whose lyrics suggest that there is no stranger existence than the one that is lived by turning your back on your own desires.”
The first trailer from earlier this year teased fans with all sorts of sexual tension between Hawke and Pascal, including one *very* sensual neck kiss.
In another scene, a lovelorn Pascal yells at Hawke: "You never loved me, you've never loved anyone in your life," which prompts Hawke to pull a gun on him.
Watch Strange Way of Life in cinemas in New York and LA from 4 October, and nationwide from 6 October.
