To say that "Gravity" is highly anticipated is an understatement, and it's easily the ticket to have for anyone hitting Venice this week, or TIFF next week. And as the marketing for the 3D space thriller ramps up with some TV spots hitting, director Alfonso Cuaron is helping his son Jonas Cuaron — co-writer on "Gravity" — get his next feature off the ground.

To say that "Gravity" is highly anticipated is an understatement, and it's easily the ticket to have for anyone hitting Venice this week, or TIFF next week. And as the marketing for the 3D space thriller ramps up with some TV spots hitting, director Alfonso Cuaron is helping his son Jonas Cuaron — co-writer on "Gravity" — get his next feature off the ground.

Variety reports that Papa Cuaron will executive produce "Desierto," co-written by his son and Mateo Garcia, with Jonas to direct. Gael Garcia Bernal will star in the movie as Moises, one of pair of men who cross the border illegally from Mexico to the United States, and the find themselves on the run from a drunken vigilante who takes border patrol a little too far. Sounds pretty interesting, and it's a reunion for Alfonso Cuaron and Bernal. The filmmaker has produced previous Bernal starring movies including "Rudo Y Cursi," "Amores Perros," "Babel" and "Y Tu Mama Tambien" and it seems that collaborative spirit is still going strong.

Production for "Desierto" starts in October, with "Gravity' along arriving in theatres that same month on the 4th.
