Alfonso Cuaron's next film, the drama Rome, will hit the big screens only in 2018, but for now the Oscar-winning director is preparing another new project, but this time on television, where many talented filmmakers have migrated over the past few years.|
According to the portal Deadline, Cuaron will join forces with another Oscar winner, Casey Affleck, and together they will begin work on an as-yet untitled horror series that will tell about the origins of a certain cult. Other details of the project are unknown, but Cuaron will write, direct and produce the show, with Affleck starring in it.
Anonymous Content is now trying to find shelter for the series on one of the cable channels or online services. Considering that Amazon executives recently ditched David O. Russell's expensive TV drama in light of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, the streaming giant probably wants to find a replacement for this project.
After the ambitious "Gravity" Alfonso Cuaron took a short break before starting work on the next motion picture. As a result, it turned out to be the family drama "Rome", which is inferior in scale to the director's previous film, but is somewhat experimental in terms of technical methods. The joint project with Affleck will not be Cuaron's first test of strength on television: he previously created the fantastic drama Believe.
As for Casey himself, after "Manchester by the Sea" he managed to star in the dramas "The Light of My Life" and "The Old Man and the Gun", and also signed up to take part in the filming of the film "Stoner".
