Fox has big plans for Zorro. Instead of doing another classic take on the character, the studio has in the works Zorro Reborn, which finds our swashbuckling hero fighting for what’s right in a post-apocalyptic world.
Variety reports that Fox has found its Zorro in 33-year-old Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries). Before he dons the mask, however, Garcia Bernal will pop up in Will Ferrell’s Spanish-language comedy Casa de mi Padre and then with Kate Hudson in A Little Bit Of Heaven.
Zorro Reborn does not yet have a start date or a director, but the screenplay was written by Harker‘s Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy.
