Five By Three, Remainder Two

According to the LA Times, Guillermo del Toro (hurrah!), Alfonso Cuaron (hurrah!) and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu are trying to set up a five picture, 100 million dollar deal with a willing Hollywood studio.

The maths breaks down something like this: five films, two in Spanish, one directed by each of the three named above and the slack picked up by Carlos Cuaron and Rodrigo Garcia. That sounds like at least two majorly Oscar nominated films, two all-time cult classics and all the potential of the remaining two films to be either or both or something else entirely.

Universal seem to be set to close the deal after other studios balked at the price tag (foolishly, if you ask me).
