Mexican Trio

Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth), Alfonso Cuarón (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Children of Men) and Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel) have joined together as a team. The Mexican director trio, who conceived the idea independently, are attempting to sell themselves in an “all-or-nothing, five-picture deal,” according to the LA Times.

The three directors created arguably three of the top 10 movies of 2006, and they know it. They are hoping that an American studio to bankroll the five films for $100 million. That’s a deal and a half if you ask me. Carlos Cuarón (Rudo y Cursi) and Rodrigo García (Passengers, Six Feet Under) would also be included in the deal, which the paper says will likely include at least two Spanish language films. Sources also claim that all five films have been identified and budgets had been estimated, but some of the projects do not yet have finished scripts. Universal will likely end up with the five-picture deal.
