Gael García y Diego Luna ready to show "Rudo y Cursi" in December

Leading Mexican heartthrobs Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna will be releasing ‘Rudo y Cursi’ December 19th in Mexico. The dramedy was written and was directed by Carlos Cuarón, who with brother Alfonso co-wrote Y tu mamá también, which also starred the two actors.

Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) co-produces with Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, director of last year’s Oscar-winning Babel and Guillermo del Toro.

Rudo y Cursi, which broadly translated as “Rough and Corny,” is a tale of love and hate between professional soccer-playing brothers played by Luna and Garcia Bernal.

Inarritu, Alfonso Cuarón and fellow Mexican Guillermo del Toro, who directed last year’s Pan’s Labyrinth, recently formed a production company that will make five films in a $100 million deal with Universal Pictures. Rudo y Cursi is the first film in the package.

Filming took place in the small coastal town of Cihuatlan, close to a banana plantation owned by the Cuarón family that the brothers visited as children.
