Garcia lines up Mother trio

Cuaron, Del Toro and Inarritu attached to Rodrigo Garcia’s ‘Mother and Child’

Rodrigo Garcia is ready to tango with his three amigos for the ensemble drama ‘Mother and Child.’

Alfonso Cuaron, Guillermo del Toro and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu will produce the writer-director’s next feature.

The $4.5 million project follows the intersecting lives of a 50-year-old woman, the daughter she gave up for adoption 35 years ago and a black woman looking to adopt a baby. Casting for the leads is under way.

Set to begin a Los Angeles shoot in late December or January, the film continues Garcia’s examination of female characters found in his dramas ‘Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her’ and ‘Nine Lives.’
