García Bernal Cast in Zorro Reboot

Mexican actor Gael García Bernal, better known for his roles in films like Rudo y Cursi and Babel, has been cast as the next Spanish superhero Zorro.

Fox has given the greenlight to the project Zorro Reborn, which will be written by Glenn Gers (Harker, Fracture).

Unlike the original story of Zorro, the next installment will not place in México or Los Angeles and it is rumored that will take place in a futuristic set.

This reboot comes seven years later after Antonio Banderas’ The Legend of Zorro, who grossed an estimated $142 million worldwide.
