Though much of the success of Gravity is deservingly credited to director/co-writer Alfonso Cuaron, the inception of the project actually began with Cuarón’s son Jonás.  Alfonso was looking for a new film to do after a smaller project had fallen apart, and he decided to team up with his son to craft a story of adversity set in outer space.  Jonás Cuarón co-wrote the script for Gravity with his father and also directed a companion short film called Aningaaq that will be on the Blu-ray, and now Warner Bros. is keen on staying in business with the burgeoning filmmaker.

Variety reports that Warner Bros. has set Jonás Cuarón to pen the script for a tentpole film set in Atlantis called The Lost City.  The studio had been eyeing Cuarón for the pic for some time, but first had to work out his schedule with his feature directorial debut Desierto, which stars Gael Garcia Bernal and starts filming early next year.  As a sign of just how big of a priority The Lost City is, Peter Jackson was at one point considering directing.  A helmer has yet to be set.
