Walter Salles new film ‘Terra’ to start shooting this year with Gael Garcia Bernal & Ricardo Darin

First announced during Cannes in 2010, “Terra” — the next film from Walter Salles — took a backseat as the director embarked on the lengthy production for the long-developing “On The Road.” But it hasn’t fallen off his radar, and with the Jack Kerouac adaptation wrapping up, we’re heartened to learn we won’t have to wait long for Salles to get cracking on another project.
Screen Daily report that production company Tu Vas Voir are set to reteam with Salles (whose “The Motorcycle Diaries” helped put the company on the map), for “Terra,” which will shoot later in the year. The project is another road movie, about two half brothers — to be played by Gael Garcia Bernal and Ricardo Darin (“The Secret In Their Eyes”) — who discover during the funeral for their father that he had a mistress in Patagonia, and decide to travel there. Producer Amiel Tenenbaum now says of the project that, “Once Walter is off ‘On The Road’ we expect the production to come together very quickly.” Filming is expected to get underway in Chile and Argentina at the end of the year.
It certainly seems like a smaller, more intimate film than the sprawling “On The Road,” and the pairing of Bernal and Darin is certainly hugely promising. We can’t wait to find out more.
