Guillermo del Toro recently spoke to MTV about his good friend Alfonso Cuarón's GRAVITY and obviously he is very enthusiastic about it.
Cuarón is pulling no punches. He went straight to the top of the industry and sought advice from David Fincher, James Cameron as well as del Toro.
Here is the storyline for the movie (adapted from Deadline):
"[The film] is set on a remote space station. While a team leader (Clooney) and a female colleague are traveling outside, the other team members get wiped out by a debris field from an exploding satellite. The film's central focus is the heroine's desperate attempt to return home to her child."
Check out a very enthused Guillermo del Toro talking about hooking Cuaron up with Cameron as well as his thoughts on the project:
Who isn't excited now? I mean really. If Cameron is saying he is five years ahead of the time in his technology use and he pulls it off? I expect cinematic history here in some capacity - seriously. Potentially a one shot 20 minute opening space scene, in S3D using brand spanking new technology to achieve a very visual director's masterpiece. I have always loved Sandra Bullock's characters and George Clooney adds some real depth. Can't wait!
