‘Zorro’ reboot falls to Gravity writer Jonas Cuaron

4 February 2016 11:02 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Zorro reboot will be written, produced and directed by Jonas Cuaron.

Jonas Cuaron will write the planned Zorro reboot. Cuaron is mostly known for his work on the Gravity screenplay, which he wrote with his father, Alfonso Cuaron back in 2013. The word on the street is that Cuaron will also direct and produce the project, currently being referred to as simply ‘Z’, for Lantica Media and Sobini Films.

The Zorro reboot will be Cuaron’s biggest project to date, after directing a couple of shorts (including one that tied in with Gravity‘s plot), the film Year Of The Nail, and the movie Desierto, which debuted at last year’s London Film Festival. We managed to catch the film at the festival, and we really quite enjoyed it. The film is essentially a cat-and-mouse movie set on the U.S./ Mexican border where Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s character is picking off illegal immigrants, »

Berlin: Jonas Cuaron Set to Helm Zorro Reboot ‘Z’

4 February 2016 1:15 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Gravity” co-scribe Jonas Cuaron is following his award-winning border thriller “Desierto” with “Z,” a reboot of “Zorro.”

Lantica Media and Sobini Films will co-produce the action thriller, set to begin principal photography in the summer at Lantica Media’s Pinewood Dominican Republic Studios, a state-of-the-art studio facility in the Dominican Republic. Pantelion Films will handle international sales, which kick off at the European Film Market in Berlin this month.

Cuaron will be writing his own vision of legendary masked vigilante, Zorro, but it will be set in the near future, said Sobini Films CEO Mark Amin. While the script is still being written, Amin projects a mid-range budget no less than $30 million but no more than $100 million. “We hope to use the studio’s water tank but are open to shooting in other locations outside of the Dominican Republic if the script calls for it,” he said.

Sony’s Zorro Reboot Will Have “Near-Future” Setting, Gravity Scribe Jonás Cuarón On Board To Direct

4 February 2016 12:36 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Citing Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight as inspiration, all signs pointed to Sony gunning for a post-apocalyptic aesthetic for Zorro Reborn. In the time that’s lapsed since we last caught wind of the studio’s masked bandit, it appears the project has been given a total overhaul, with plans now in place for the reboot to be rooted in the near-future.

That’s according to The Hollywood Reporter, revealing that Gravity co-writer Jonás Cuarón will write and direct the remake now formally known as Z. It’s by no means the only property to get the futuristic treatment under Sony, given the company is also whisking Robin Hood and his fellow men in tights into the not-so-distant future for a “revisionist” and “gritty” and “reimagining” and just about every other buzzword that comes to mind.

As for Zorro – sorry, Z – Cuarón is reportedly eyeing a summer start date, »

Jonas Cuarón to Write and Direct ‘Z,’ a Zorro Movie Without the Orro

4 February 2016 12:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

It’s been a decade since The Legend of Zorro came and went, ending Antonio Banderas’ run as the famed masked hero. Since then, reports of a new movie starring the iconic swordsman have arrived like clockwork, only for the actual film to fail to materialize. Remember when Gael Garcia Bernal was supposed to play Zorro in […]

'Gravity' Screenwriter Jonas Cuaron To Direct Zorro Movie 'Z'

4 February 2016 11:27 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Hollywood has really been trying to bring Zorro back to the big screen lately. Four years ago, Fox was developing a post-apocalyptic take on the character (wtf?), that would've starred Gael Garcia Bernal. Perhaps thankfully, that version never materialized. But it seems that the idea of taking the masked hero, who defends mid-19th century Los Angeles against tyranny and who has penchant for leaving his initial everywhere, and ill-advisedly putting him into the future is one that studio big shots can't shake, and so another a new project is coming together. Jonas Cuaron, who co-wrote "Gravity" and wrote and directed "Desierto" (starring Bernal), has been tasked with bringing "Z" to life. This version will be set in the near feature, but the basic concept of a masked dude righting the wrongs inflicted upon the common people will stay the same.

Jonas Cuaron To Helm A "Zorro" Reboot

4 February 2016 9:36 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Jonas Cuaron, Alfonso Cuaron's son who penned "Gravity" and recently wrote and directed "Desierto," has been hired to pen and direct a new take on Zorro.

"Z" will be produced by Lantica Media and Sobini Films, but there's little to no details on what approach Cuaron will take with the material.

Over the last few years the companies were developing "Zorro Reborn," a post-apocalyptic take on the myth of Zorro and follows a masked and caped stranger taking on tyrants in a Mad Max-style wasteland. Whether that will change with Cuaron's hiring is unclear, though if he's writing a new script expect at least some reworking of that premise.

Shooting will take place at Pinewood Dominican Republic Studios starting this Summer, and the project will be on sale at the European Film Market in Berlin this month. Mark Amin will produce.

‘Mr. Pig’ Co-Investor Jalisco Renews Film Fund Equity Line (Exclusive)

27 January 2016 5:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A co-investor in Diego Luna’s Danny Glover-starrer “Mr. Pig” which screens in Sundance Premieres, Mexico’s Jalisco Film Fund is renewing for 2016 its risk equity film investment scheme, offering up to Pesos 17 million ($922,000) this year to one foreign or Mexican international co-production which shoots 40% of locations in the state of Jalisco.

Jff president Alberto Lamas Flores launched the 2016 call for applications Tuesday Jan. 26, coinciding with Sundance world premiere of “Mr. Pig,” the third fiction feature from actor-director-producer Luna, star of Amazon’s “Casanova” pilot. Luna’s first fiction feature “Abel” bowed at Sundance to acclaim in 2010.

Tapped for “Mr. Pig” by Mexico and L.A.-based Canana, founded by Luna, Gael Garcia Bernal and Pablo Cruz, the Jalisco Film Fund equity line reps the only film financing scheme in place among Mexico’s 31 states, said Jff director Rodolfo Guzman Salas.

5 Reasons You Should Be Watching Mozart in the Jungle

26 January 2016 2:15 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Although Mozart in the Jungle won two major Golden Globe Awards at the 2016 ceremony (for best television series and best actor for the show's leading man, Gael Garcia Bernal), a lot of people still have yet to watch it. This, my friends, is a tragedy, because Amazon's underrated hit is truly a delight to watch. The show follows a young, flamboyant conductor who takes on the New York City symphony, and between all of the humor, heart, and stop-you-in-your-tracks beautiful music, there's no way you won't fall in love. With each episode coming in at only a half an hour long, you can easily blow through the first and second seasons. Keep reading to see why! »

Spike Lee, Jada Pinkett Smith boycott Oscars because #OscarsSoWhite

18 January 2016 11:31 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On the morning of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, just a few days after the Academy Award nominations revealed another year of four categories of exclusively white nominees, Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith took to social media to tell the world that they would be boycotting the Oscars. “We cannot support it,” Lee posted on Instagram — with a photo of Dr. King in his cap and gown at his undergrad commencement. Lee wrote that he and his wife will not be attending the Academy Awards ceremony next month, though he means “no disrespect to my friends, host Chris Rock and producer Reggie Hudlin, President [Cheryl Boone] Isaacs, and the Academy.” Lee called out the four acting categories both this year and last year that launched the Twitter hashtag #OscarsSoWhite: “40 white actors in 2 years and no flava at all. We can’t act?! Wtf!!” (See his full Instagram post below.)   #OscarsSoWhite... Again. »

Film Review: ‘Eva Doesn’t Sleep’

13 January 2016 7:44 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The presiding character in “Eva Doesn’t Sleep” is dead before most of the action takes place: Writer-director Pablo Aguero (“Salamandra”) speculates on the eerie journey of Eva Peron’s body, which disappeared in the aftermath of the 1955 military coup that overthrew her husband, Argentine president Juan Peron, and wasn’t returned to the country until the 1970s. This morbid subject matter is served at a chilly temperature about as far removed from Andrew Lloyd Webber as could possibly be imagined. The elliptical narrative and political intrigue will appeal to those well versed in Argentine history, as well as to arthouse audiences of the sort that flock to Alexander Sokurov’s films, to which “Eva” bears a resemblance in its cerebral approach to history.

The movie unfolds in flashback from 1976, narrated by a military leader from a coup that year credited simply as “Admiral,” but likely representing Jorge Rafael Videla (Gael Garcia Bernal, »

13 January 2016 3:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Neruda

Director: Pablo Larrain

Writer: Guillermo Calderon

Pablo Larrain has quickly become one of the most important auteurs in the Chilean New Wave of the past decade thanks to his Pinochet trilogy (Tony Manero; Post Mortem; No) and his excellent 2015 film The Club, which won the Silver Bear in Berlin and recently received a Golden Globe nod for Best Foreign Language Film). He’s been incredibly busy, and his next film, Neruda, is a period biopic of Nobel prize winning poet Pablo Neruda. Penned by Guillermo Calderon (who wrote The Club and 2011’s Violeta Went to Heaven), the film stars Luis Gnecco as Neruda, hunted down in 1940s Chile for joining the Communist Party. Gael Garcia Bernal (who starred in No, 2012) and Larrain’s regular cast member Alfredo Castro also star.
