While Gerardo Naranjo was known on the arthouse scene mostly for his 2008 effort "Voy a explotar," it was last year's "Miss Bala" that brought him to worldwide attention. His breathless thriller, set among the drug war in Mexico, showed a director with a kinetic flair for action, and sensitive and complex touch for character, in one of the breakout highlights at Cannes. It didn't take long for Hollywood to come knocking, and earlier this year, he lined up the survival tale/love story "The Mountain Between Us" at Fox, with Michael Fassbender attached to star. And now another studio is tapping his talent for a new project.
