Almodovar Rules Out Move To Hollywood

Director PEDRO ALMODOVAR has crushed speculation he plans to quit his native Spain for Hollywood. The maverick movie-maker, responsible for films such as VOLVER and BAD EDUCATION, feels he is too old now to change his ways and that the Hollywood method of working would not suit him. He says, "I'm an artist. I'm part of every decision in a movie. This is not how they work in Hollywood. There the director is part of the crew, not the main creator. "I'm too old to change now. I wouldn't know how to do it." The director also laments the worsening standard of Hollywood screenwriting, adding, "They forget the most important thing is the script, and the scripts get weaker and weaker. Technical effects advance, but the literary quality is worse."
