Gael García Bernal is returning to his roots for his next project…
The 34-year-old Mexican actor will star in the Spanish-language film Desierto.
Jonas Cuarón — who co-wrote his father Alfonso Cuarón’s new sci-fi thriller Gravity — will direct the film, which tells the tale of illegal immigrants who cross into the U.S. and end up running from an American who has taken border patrol into his own hands.
While they fight for their lives, the two immigrants fall for each other.
Jonas Cuarón wrote the script with Mateo Garcia.
