Oscar-winning director Cuarón returns to Mexican themes in next film
LOS ANGELES — Oscar-winner Alfonso Cuarón is coming back to earth, and his home country, for his next film. The “Gravity” director’s new project will take on a year in the life of a middle class family in Mexico City in the early 1970s.
Participant Media announced the untitled film and collaboration Thursday Sept. 8, the Associated Press reported.
Cuarón said that the still-untitled film is close to his heart and that it will be his first to film in Mexico since his 2001 coming-of-age road trip movie “Y Tu Mamá También.”
This will be Cuarón’s first film since “Gravity,” which won seven Oscars in 2014, including Best Director.
No cast was announced.
