 Cuaron Mulls SF Film

Mexican-born director Alfonso Cuaron (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) told SCI FI Wire that his next film might very well be a science fiction movie, Children of Men. "That's a big possibility," Cuaron said in an interview. "I need to see what happens at the end of this [Azkaban] process. I would love to do that."

Cuaron added that he would also write Children of Men. "It's not really science-fiction," he said. "It's the world 30 years from now, [a time] in which for 18 years no human child has been born, for unknown reasons. Civilizations are falling apart. England is the last remaining civilization as we know it, because it's an island that's insulated itself from Europe, which is in civil wars and complete pandemonium. So the story takes place in that context. It's a story about hope and faith."

Cuaron's upcoming Harry Potter and the Prison of Azkaban, based on the third of J.K. Rowling's best-selling Potter books, opens June 4.
