Cuaron on ‘Little’

Alfonso Cuaron, who just received a CableAce award for directing an episode of Showtime’s “Fallen Angels” series, will direct Warner Bros.’ feature “The Little Princess.”

Based on the book by Frances Hodgson Burnett and made in 1939 starring Shirley Temple, it’s about a Victorian waif.

The new script is written by Richard LaGravenese; Elizabeth Chandler has been brought in to update the script.

In addition to “Princess,” Cuaron is also set to helm Columbia Pictures’ thriller “Love in the Attic,” a Lauren Shuler-Donner project loosely based on a true story about a wife who hides her husband’s female employees in their attic. The script was written by Donald Westlake.

The Mexican director made his mark in Hollywood with the 1992 low-budget “Love in the Time of Hysteria.”

Cuaron won the CableAce award for the “Murder, Obliquely” episode of “Fallen Angels.”
