After flying high – both in terms of subject and critical response – with Gravity (2013), director, writer and producer Alfonso Cuarón is looking a little closer to home for his next movie. He has closed in on an untitled drama set in Mexico.
Not much is known about the new film as yet, save that Cuarón has written the script and will direct the story, which chronicles a year in the life of a middle class family in Mexico City in the early 1970s. "This film is close to my heart and my first in Mexico since Y Tu Mamá También (2001)," Cuarón said in a statement. "I am thrilled to be making it with the Participant team."
The director has teamed up with Participant Media to work on the movie, which he aims to start shooting this autumn in Mexico. While there will almost certainly be less digital effects shots for this one, but we are still excited to see what Cuarón does next.
