Fox eyes Gael García Bernal to play Zorro in Zorro Reborn
The reboot would take Zorro into a post-apocalyptic era. The story will not be set in California or Mexico, but a post-apocalyptic wasteland. The actor would play the masked vigilante bent on revenge.
The film was written by Glenn Gers with help from Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy.
Sony is also developing a origin story about the Mexican American hero based on Isabel Allende's 2005 novel simply called Zorro. Sony already has two Zorro movies starring Antonio Banderas.
The film is still in early development and is currently looking for a director for the project.
