Aug 18, 2015

Today, The Hollywood Reporter announced that a Zorro reboot is moving forward at Lantica Media and Sobini Films. The new film is titled Zorro: Reborn and will begin filming in 2016. It will take the classic Mexican vigilante made famous by actor Antonio Banderas and put him in a futuristic post-apocalyptic world to fight the cartel.  The film was once at 20th Century Fox who even leaked test footage on the project (below) back in 2012. No director or actor has been found yet but names like Bryan Singer, Ricardo de Montreuil, Garry Whitta and Justin Marks have been attached to it in the past.

Zorro Reborn is a post-apocalyptic take on the myth of Zorro, the pulp hero created in 1919. The traditional stories cast Zorro as a hero of peasants and farmers who fought against corrupt and brutal officials of Spanish-held California. Reborn is set in the near future but keeps the idea of a masked and caped stranger taking on tyrants.

Other Zorro reboots have been in talks ion the past. One was revealed from the infamous Sony Hacks that Sony was considering teaming up with director Quentin Tarantino to create a Django Unchained/Zorro reboot with both vigilantes. The director sounded interested but it seems nothing has come from those talks…
