It looks like Jonás Cuarón latest film will make its way north of the U.S.-Mexico border…
The 34-year-old Mexican film director and screenwriter’s latest project Desierto has landed at STX Entertainment.
The Spanish-language film centers on a group of immigrants trying to cross the border from Mexico into the United States when they encounter a man who has taken up border patrol duties in his own racist hands.
Desierto, which stars Gael Garcia Bernal and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, won the Prize of the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) for Special Presentations at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.
Cuarón, the son of Academy Award-winning film director and screenwriter Alfonso Cuarón, co-wrote his father’s Oscar-winning film Gravity.
STX Entertainment’s deal is for Desierto’s North American rights.
