Thanks big brother!

Carlos Cuaron
Carlos Cuaron is directing the first film by Cha Cha Cha, the partnership recently created by Mexico’s film heavyweights Gonzalez Inarritu, Alfonso Cuaron and Guillermo del Toro. The three directors struck a deal this year with Universal Studios to produce five films for $100 million.
The film Rudo y Cursi (Rough and Course) is a comedy starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, who were last paired in the 2001 breakout Mexican film Y Tu Mama Tambien. The storyline features two soccer-playing brothers in a life-long rivalry. Y Tu Mama Tambien was also written by Carlos Cuaron and directed by Alfonso.
Filming began three weeks ago in Cihuatlan. The movie also stars Guillermo Francella and Ivan Esquivel.

On a side note, I watched The King, starring Bernal and William Hurt last night. Great, creepy movie. Not sure why it never generated any buzz. Bernal is a really amazing actor. I have yet to see him in a bad movie.
