WME has just signed Alfonso Cuarón. It is a return to the agency fold for the Mexican filmmaker, who left WME in 2017 shortly after he had signed with Anonymous Content for management, based on his long relationship with principal and producer Steve Golin. Golin passed away recently, and now Cuarón will have agency representation again, while retaining his tie to Anonymous Content.
Cuarón won two Oscars for the Netflix film Roma, for Best Director and for Best Cinematographer. The film also won Best Foreign Language film. He also won Best Director and Best Editor for Gravity. The breadth of his work, from Roma to Gravity to Children of Men to Y Tu Mamá También to Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, is about as good as you’re going to find.
