Gael Garcia Bernal is Zorro in "Zorro Reborn" Reboot

Posted: February 17th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Gael Garcia Bernal is Zorro in "Zorro Reborn" RebootSubmit Comment
About a year ago, we learned that 20th Century Fox was planning to reboot the "Zorro" franchise with a film called "Zorro Reborn." Now comes word that the studio has hired Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal (Babel) to star as the title character.

The new movie will take Zorro out of his California or Mexico setting, and place him into a desolate and post-apocalyptic future. He will be less a caped crusader for justice than a one-man vigilante force bent on revenge, in a western story that's similar in tone to "No Country for Old Men."

Glenn Gers (Fracture) wrote the script for "Zorro Reborn," which is now seeing a director. Rpin Suwannath, a pre-visualization specialist who worked on a number of the "X-Men," "Matrix" and "Chronicles of Narnia" movies, was set to helm, but has since dropped out.

I may have been semi-interested........ until that. Always kind of liked Zorro, but this sounds pretty lame.

@bandolero999
Agreed. Banderas was great in the first film. The second film was okay. It mostly just a fun movie then art. Anyway I kept hoping they might make another one to that series instead since Banderas seems to keep himself in decent shape.

Thing is...Part 1 had the original Zorro (a Mexican) as a Anthony Hopkins, a brit with a bad tan with a pencil moustache, WTF?!

That was as bad as Alba playing a blonde, blue eyes in FANTASTIC FOUR!

Antonio Banderas, a Spaniard (closer) I think was the only one with the starpower to pull it off, though.

As for G G Bernal, the guy is talented, no doubt about that, but he's very picky with his roles, no ego. His usually around the independents films, always choosing the weirdest, complex characters.

How good is he? Check out Mexican flicks AMORES PERROS & Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN. To give you an idea, he & Diego Luna are Mexico's equivalent of Ben Affleck/ Matt Damon with the willingness to work together like Stiller/Wilson. Both even already directed their own movies. These 2 f*ckers to be seen most recently in CASA DE MI PADRE with Will Ferrell.

Having said that, Garcia ooks more like the peasant of Zorro's ranch than the titular hero. I'm not sure he'll do it, the guy is fickle & is not usually attracted to Hollywood mainstream movies...we'll see.

With the movie, I got one good news, one bad. The good is that they are thinking outside the box, but the bad news, it's out of a crappy, beat up ol' box...

@Bullit
Thank you sir.
As for the continuation of upcoming Mexican actors, may I suggest keeping track of Demian Bichir

I think he's doing a lot of good work these days. Check out A BETTER LIFE, where he picks up the movie exponentially with his acting. The movie is average handling a hot topic, but Bichir brings the human/emotional weight to the film. He's recently gotten attention following playing Fidel Castro in movies CHE Part 1&2. But as I understand it, he's also paid his dues.

This guy has acting in his blood. His parents are from the theatre & he's one of 3 brothers that are also actors. They're like the Mexican Baldwin bros. if you will.

Want more proof? Bichir has won an Ariel (Mexican equivalent of an Oscar) with HASTA MORIR and, I believe, has been nominated for an Oscar this year for A BETTER LIFE.

I'm very curious about his next project...

Don't worry about Badchad. Boys will be boys...

As for Garcia/ Luna, I disagree man, these f*ckers know their craft.
They play straight up natural roles, but usually in dramas

Matando cabos is a funny movie.

Glad you saw that one...unfortunately, those movies aren't that common in Mexico.

And did you notice? The wrestler in that movie, was the sadistic, corrupt general in QUANTUM OF SOLACE? Small world, huh?

@celluloidman: I always thought Zorro was a Spanish land owner living in Mexico.

As for this futuristic installment, it seems like too much of a stretch. Instead of relying on name recognition they should just carve their own path like Book of Eli did. Calling it Zorro is just cheap.

Well, depends the origin of el ZORRO. In the literature, there many inconsistencies & missed details, but personally always thought of Mexico's first superhero since the nobility I always thought as title by land. But yeah, it had always been thought (not clarified) as Spanish, my bad.

You people act like Fox has a choice in going to the future with the story. Even though Zorro is public domain, Disney has bought the rights to every screen interpretation of him, so their lawyere aren't going to let you see the classic Zorro unless it's in a Disney kids movie.
The original tales are far greater than that, and somebody at Fox recognized it. There's plenty of room for a new take on Zorro. His is a story that could be told at many different times in history and will probably always be politically relevant.

Also, his original costume was much less retarded than Disney's mariachi in a cape.

Why the hell even call it Zorro? Has nothing at all to do with it?? Hollyweird is triiiping.
