Zorro Reboot Tabs Gael Garcia Bernal As Masked Hero

Posted: February 16, 2012 in Movies

Antonio Banderas isn’t the only Spanish heart-throb that can swoon over the ladies, don a black mask, and parlay a sword with the best of them.  Nosireebob.  According to a Variety report Spanish actor Gael Garcia Bernal has now been officially attached to Fox’s upcoming Zorro reboot titled Zorro Reborn.

The film has long been in development throughout the early stages with a script having already been written, but the project does not yet have a director.  The script was penned by Glenn Gers (Mad Money).

Bernal will be appearing next to Will Ferrel in next month’s Casa de mi Padre and later this year in A Little Bit of Heaven co-starring Kate Hudson.  Zorro Reborn will be a futuristic take on the classic Mexican swordsman, despite the character’s rich western roots.

There is no time table for the film’s release.
