Although, personally, I found Gravity to be underwhelming and pretty empty, I will admit that, as a technical achievement, it was astonishing. That said, I’m a fan of Cuaron and would be excited to see him come back to earth… even if it’s not as director.
Cuaron’s new movie, Forsaken, which he co-wrote and is being distributed by IM Global’ was being sold at the Cannes film festival and the company’s Stuart Ford said that: “In a way, Forsaken is a de facto prequel to Gravity.
“Jonas and Alfonso were working on the screenplay of ‘Forsaken,’ then called ‘Desierto,’ when they had a very similar concept and put it in space. So ‘Forsaken’ has a lot of themes similar to ‘Gravity.’ It’s about someone in a spectacularly peaceful but perilous environment trying to get home.”
Directed by Jonas Cuaron, Variety say: “Forsaken has Garcia Bernal playing a man crossing an unguarded part of the Sonora desert to try to get into the United States when he and his fellow travelers are shot off one by one. Cuaron penned the screenplay with Mateo Garcia.”
Sounds intriguing… more as we hear it, guys
