Alfonso Cuaron Harry Potter

According to MarketSaw (via Celluloid and Cigarette Burns, who makes a case for the site’s track record of being right), Alfonso Cuaron is in the mix and could be the preferred candidate to direct Star Wars Episode VIII or IX or both. Obviously, this would be awesome.

And it would be awesome for the exact two reasons that Cuaron is a viable candidate in the first place.

  1. He’s a director with intense cult appeal, geekily built from a talent that blisters eyeballs and bruises jaws.
  2. He’s had experience working successfully with a massive franchise aimed at the young and young at heart.

But beyond Children of Men and his Harry Potter entry, we’ll get to see Gravity in October (which means we’re getting more Emmanuel Lubezki work too!), where Cuaron goes to space. So you can add that interstellar aspect to the list above. Obviously this isn’t wholly confirmed yet, and probably won’t be for a long time, but the thought of it is huge and perfect. Hopefully it turns out to be true.
