Alfonso Cuarón’s next feature film is officially in the works.

The as-yet-untitled project will chronicle the life of a middle-class family in early 1970s Mexico City. Cuarón will direct, pen the script, and produce alongside Gabriela Rodriguez (Gravity, Children of Men) and Nicolás Celis (Desierto, Heli, The Untamed). Jeff Skoll, David Linde, and Jonathan King of Participant Media, which is partnering on the movie, will executive produce.

“This film is close to my heart,” Cuarón said in a release. “I am thrilled to be making it with the Participant team.”

Production is slated to begin in Mexico this fall, marking Cuarón’s first shoot in the country since his 2001 breakout drama Y Tu Mamá También. He won an Oscar for Best Director with 2013’s Gravity, which starred Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. It was nominated for 10 awards at the 2014 Academy Awards and won seven.

Cuarón has also helmed A Little Princess, Children of Men, and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
