Future Flicks: Zorro Reborn

Gael García Bernal is attached to the new film Zorro Reborn as Zorro!

Since the independent hit film, Y Tu Mama Tambien, he has taken on some of the most fascinating character roles in films like: Walter Salles’s Motorcycle Diaries, Pedro Almodóvar’s Bad Education, and Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Babel. He is considered as one of today’s most well known and talented actors from Mexico… and without a doubt, he can play Zorro!

The history of Zorro on the silver screen dates back to 1920 with the original The Mark of Zorro, played by Douglas Fairbanks. Since then there has been a number of Zorro adventures and remakes, and even a television series done by Disney with Guy Williams as the masked man from 1957 to 1959. And this is just in American films! Zorro has also been featured in Mexican and European films since the 1920s.

Though I have marked Gael García Bernal as part of the cast of Zorro Reborn, things may change due to the nature of Hollywood’s business handling in production timing, finances, the movie’s popularity sway for another masked hero in theaters, or even a change in the actor’s availability for the project.

The Zorro Reborn script is ready and production should begin in 2013 once 20th Century Fox picks up a director to set things in motion.
