‘Gravity’ Writer Pens Zorro Reboot, Starring Actor Selected

The man in the mask returns with Jonás Cuarón‘s reboot of Zorro. The film, which will be simply titled Z, has finally cast its leading man.

Gael García Bernal will be donning the mask and sword as the titular character. The film will be a reimagining of the legendary swashbuckler that will be set slightly in the future.

Gael García Bernal starred in ‘Desierto,’ which was also directed by Cuaron.

Mark Amin, whose company Sobini Films will be co-producing the project along with Lantica Pictures, said García Bernal is the perfect fit for the role.

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

Cuarón will not only be directing the project, he has written the script as well. Cuarón’s most well-known project so far has been Gravity, which he is credited with writing.
