Alfonso Cuarón is teaming with Participant Media on his next feature film, an untitled project he is writing and directing. The movie will chronicle a year in the life of a middle-class family in Mexico City in the early 1970s, and production is slated to begin in Mexico this fall. It will be the Oscar winner’s first movie shot there since his breakout 2001 hit Y Tu Mamá También.
Cuarón, Gabriela Rodriguez and Nicolás Celis are producing. Participant’s Jeff Skoll, David Linde and Jonathan King will executive produce.
Cuarón’s won the Best Director Oscar for his last film Gravity, which was nominated for seven Oscars in 2014 including Best Picture and won seven.
Wow...another crazy anticipated film for 2017. What a year.
Cuaron is one of the most exciting and probably the most versatile director working right now. Such a shame he spent so much time on Gravity. It's good no doubt, but was not worth all the time that went into it imo.
