Do the Cha Cha Cha!
Viva la Mexico!
Mexican pals and auteurs Alfonso Cuarón, Guillermo del Toro, and Alejandro González Iñárritu have teamed up for a $100 million, five picture deal with Universal called Cha Cha Cha. Under the deal, each of them will make a new flick, along with two other movies made by Rodrigo Garcia and Alfonso's brother Carlos Cuarón.
Since one of them's made three masterpieces (Iñárritu; 21 Grams, Amores perros, Babel), one of them's made two masterpieces (Alfonso; Children of Men, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban), one of them's made one masterpiece (Garcia; Nine Lives), one helped his brother write a near-masterpiece (Carlos; Y tu mamá también), and one of them's an interesting guy who could one day make a masterpiece (del Toro; sorry, Pan's Labyrinth was good but came nowhere close to living up to its hype), I am ecstatic at this news.
