Little is known about the film itself, other than the fact that its working title is “Limbo” and that it will explore political and social aspects of modern-day Mexico. The film will be led by Mexican actor Daniel Giménez Cacho and shot by Oscar-nominated cinematographer Darius Khondji, meaning Iñárritu will not be working with Emmanuel Lubezki who won back-to-back Oscars for cinematography on the director’s previous two films, “Birdman” and “The Revenant.”
Filming is expected to last another five months with the aim of releasing the film this year.
