The new Zorro movie, Z, casts Gael Garcia Bernal as its lead…
Things are moving forward in the world of the planned Zorro reboot, with the news that Gael Garcia Bernal has been cast in the title role. He becomes the first to play Zorro on the big screen since Antonio Banderas took on the role at the end of the 1990s (for The Mask Of Zorro and The Legend Of Zorro).
The new Zorro film is being directed by Jonas Cuaron (son of Gravity helmer Alfonso Cuaron), and he’s also penning the script too.
The movie continues to go by the name of Z (nothing to do with the Bitmap Brothers game of the same name, 90s computer game fans), and the plan is to still set the film slightly in the future.
The film is set to go before buyers at the Cannes Film Festival, and we’d imagine the plan is – now a Zorro has been found – to get Z moving later this year.
