I read in Total Film magazine today a new bit of information about Charlie Hunnam's character in "Children of Men". It appears, he'll have 4 golden teeth and dreadlocks!

Anyway, there almost no other new info on Cuaron and his projects, but stay tuned :)

Wow, I have some sweet update for "The Children of Men" here.

http://www.ljplus.ru/img/k/i/kiru_biru/ejiofor.jpg At a recent interview for the new film "Kinky Boots" IGN FilmForce had the chance to ask actor Chiwetel Ejiofor ("Serenity") about his work on Alfonso Cuaron's upcoming film.

Ejiofor explains the plot: "It's sort of set a short time in the future with general sort of political societal collapses as well as these issues of fertility that have created a very enraged and complex society, and it's based on the Peter James novel. Alfonso, I think, has adapted and written a terrific script, and a really good cast of people have come together to shoot the film. And I think he's an amazing director. And I think the work that we were doing on the film is just exceptional. It's one of those things that I don't think anybody's ever really seen before... in terms of a visual sense, and the nature of the way he's pulled out characterizations and so on, I think, is very unique, so it would be an intriguing time... I think it's really going to be quite interesting to see when it comes out."

"I play, along with Julianne Moore, the heads of an anti-government group that is sort of existing on the fringes of society, and we sort of try to get the allegiance of Clive Owens' character."

"Serenity" and "Children" both have futuristic themes, but Ejiofor says the similarities end there. "I mean, Serenity was different in the sense that it was a very kind of broad, operatic science fiction with all the great stuff that that has. And this is much more...it almost feels like a drama that just has a scientific, or a sci-fi touch because it's set in the future, but could easily be set in the present. So they were very distinct in that sense, and there's not that kind of idea of loads of green screen and massive wires. You know, there's not that kind of operatic science fiction feel to it...to Children of Men."

Cool, eh? Visuals certainly going to be great. There is no other way, if you have Emmanuel Lubezki.

Seems like Tavener's confirmed [Apr. 14th, 2006|09:12 pm]
Alfonso Cuarón: latest news, projects and info.

In one of the most prestigious composer assignments this year, Sir John Tavener has been engaged by Universal Pictures to compose original music for Alfonso Cuaron’s upcoming film "The Children of Men". Tavener, one of the most respected composers of contemporary concert music, has been hired to score this science fiction film taking place in 2027.

Among Tavener’s most heralded works are ”The Veil of the Temple,” ”The Whale,” and ”The Protecting Veil.” A lot of his music dwells on mysticism and deals with religious motifs, and it has close ties to the minimalism of composers such as Arvo Part and Henryk Gуrecki.

Premiere article [Apr. 13th, 2006|03:01 pm]
Alfonso Cuarón: latest news, projects and info.

New stuff about "The Children of Men" came from Premiere

"We're living in a present in which there's not much regard for human life," says writer-director Alfonso Cuaron. "The movie is a reminder of the miracle that life is, and how we take that for granted."

Based on the novel by P. D. James, this dystopian thriller fast-forward to 2027, where no child has been born for 18 years and science is at a loss to explain the reason. As African and Eastern European societies collapse, their dwindling population migrate to England and other wealthy nations. In a climate of nationalistic violence, a London peace activist - turned bureaucrat (Clive Owen) join forces with his revolutionary ex-wife (Julianne Moore) to save mankind by protecting a woman who has become pregnant.

Cuaron designed his sets to reflect a humankind stripped of all creative impulses - not just those of the conjugal variety. "Technology stops operating ten or fifteen years before," he says, "so things like cars will look contemporary to us, but will actually be very old in the world of the film". As if the whole infertility crisis wasn't bad enough.

Owen speaks "Children" [Apr. 10th, 2006|03:01 pm]

Later this year, we'll get a chance to see Clive Owen in Alfonso Cuaron's follow up to the third Harry Potter movie, "The Children of Men", based on the book by P.D. James. "I think it could definitely be disturbing," Owen said when asked how closely it follows the book. "It's taken the central theme and it's definitely the same story, but the elements of the book have been changed quite a lot. It's still set 30 years in the future and the conceit is still the same, that no one has had a baby anywhere for eighteen years and our reluctant hero has ended up linked with the only pregnant girl on the planet. That's still the same, but Alfonso's done a really fascinating, unusual exploration of where things could be going, and that's still very, very strong in the movie. It's a very unusual take. People are assuming it's a sci-fi movie but it's almost the opposite of that. It's like now, but worse. It's the environment we're living in. It's not futuristic. It's like things have not ended up that great and we're in a world where there are no children, which is a pretty bleak place. Half the movie's a chase movie, really, but it's in a really extraordinary vision of the future."

There is unconfirmed info that a part of soundtrack for "The Children of Men" will be written by sir John Tavener, a british composer. I didn't manage to find and listen any of his works, sadly.
