Gael Garcia Bernal Will Be Zorro Reborn

Douglas Fairbanks, Guy Williams, Antonio Banderas and others have played the iconic swashbuckling character Zorro, but now a new name can be added to that list as Variety is saying that Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal (Y Tu Mama Tambien) will be donning the mask of Zorro for a new futuristic reboot from 20th Century Fox.

A few months back, Sony hired writers to reboot their Zorro franchise, but 20th Century Fox has decided to move ahead with their own Zorro project tentatively called Zorro Reborn, which won’t be set either in California or Mexico but will have Bernal’s Zorro as a masked vigilante looking for revenge. Written by Glenn Gers, Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy, the project is still looking for a director.
