Gael Garcia Bernal To Star In Zorro Reboot


After years in development purgatory, the new Zorro reboot movie is back in gear and will star Gael Garcia Bernal as the black-masked outlaw. The movie will be called Z and takes place in the near future, which is interesting. It will be written and directed by Jonás Cuarón who has been trying to get the project off the ground for a long time. Producer Mark Armin says this about casting Bernal,

“I have always loved Gael for this role. Zorro is a hero who is charming, witty and clever. Gael possesses all those characteristic and he’s able to deliver them with a modern spin to introduce the Zorro character to a new audience.”

I agree that Bernal is a great choice for Zorro. The character was my hero growing up, due in no small part to his being the only Latino superhero available to me at the time. I was Zorro three Halloweens in a row, for crying out loud. Just like Antonio Banderas was the clear choice in the 90’s to play the legendary swordsman, Bernal is the obvious casting decision.
