Mexican director Alfonso Cuarón made a splash in Hollywood with his 2013 space-thriller Gravity scooping up two Academy Awards and two BAFTAs. He is now set to make just his second film since this film and he’s looking a little closer to home.
Although Gravity was far from his first major feature it was undoubtedly his most successful in terms of a piece of work. He is also known for directing Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban which is often heralded as the film in the Harry Potter franchise that shift from a kids film to something much more real and darker. He is now set to move onto something a little less magical and a little less CGI spacey.
Hailing from Mexico, Cuarón is returning home for his next film. Although it hasn’t got a title yet we do know that it will focus on a middle-class family living in Mexico in the 1970’s. “This film is close to my heart and my first in Mexico since Y Tu Mamá También," Cuarón said in a statement. "I am thrilled to be making it with the Participant team." The team he mentioned there are Participant Media who he is working with on this movie.
We don’t have a title or release date for this film at the moment but Cuarón is looking to start filming in the next few months.
