Gael Garcia Bernal Will Be Zorro Reborn
February 16, 2012
Douglas Fairbanks, Guy Williams, Antonio Banderas and others have played the iconic swashbuckling character Zorro
, but now a new name can be added to that list as Variety
are saying that Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal (Y Tu Mama Tambien
) will be donning the mask of Zorro for a new futuristic reboot from 20th Century Fox.
A few months back, Sony hired writers to reboot their Zorro franchise, but 20th Century Fox have decided to move ahead with their own Zorro project tentatively called Zorro Reborn
, which won't be set either in California or Mexico but will have Bernal's Zorro as a masked vigilante looking for revenge. Written by Glenn Gers, Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy, the project is still looking for a director.
