Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #106. Jonas Cuaron’s Desierto


Director: Jonas Cuaron
Writers: Mateo Garcia, Jonas Cuaron
Producers: Alfonso Cuaron, Carlos Cuaron and Alex Garcia
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Gael Garcia Bernal, Jeffrey Dean Morgan

Jonas Cuaron, son to Alfonso and writer of Gravity, will shortly begin filming his sophomore feature as director, snagging Bernal and Morgan as his leads. While we’re in the midst of awards season, Cuaron is sure to see more attention bestowed upon him in the coming months, which means his next film efforts should receive much wider interest. We’re looking forward to seeing this, and hope that Alfonso Cuaron moves ahead with their other collaboration in the pipeline, A Boy and His Shoe.

Gist: The film is centered on a group of illegal immigrants who try to cross the US border but run afoul of a man who has taken up border patrol duties in his own racist hands.

Release Date: Filming began/begins this month in Baja, California – perhaps an end of year bow, with a little luck, perhaps an appearance at a later festival such as Venice which is where his father’s film preemed.
