    Alfonso Cuaron regrets making movie adaptation of 'Great Expectations'

    If go by the latest claims made by Gravity filmmaker Alfonso Cuaron, he feels that he made a mistake by coming up with a movie adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic novel Great Expectations.

    Even though, Cuaron, 51, decided to modernize the classic story in 1998, he was hesitant about going ahead with the project. His inhibitions increased after he attained success with his critically acclaimed film The Little Princess in 1995.

    "I got a bit engaged in the machinery. I forgot that I used to do my own stuff, and I became this reader of screenplays that they were sending to me. And I started forgetting that I had a voice. It started to become more about the industry," Cuaron said. Gravity director Alfonso Cuaron says that he made a mistake by making a movie adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic novel 'Great Expectations'.

    The 51-year-old filmmaker took on the task of modernizing the classic story in 1998, but was extremely hesitant about taking on the project, especially after the success of his critically acclaimed film The Little Princess in 1995, said the Hollywood Reporter.

    "I got a bit engaged in the machinery. I forgot that I used to do my own stuff, and I became this reader of screenplays that they were sending to me. And I started forgetting that I had a voice. It started to become more about the industry," Cuaron said.

    "And then I did a film that was a horrible experience, 'Great Expectations'. That is a film that I should have not done. I passed many times, and then I ended up saying yes for the wrong reasons," he added.
