Gael Garcia Bernal to make his mark in Zorro Reborn

17 February 2012 2:50 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Mexican actor will play the masked adventurer in a futuristic reboot of the swashbuckling series

Gael Garcia Bernal is to take a swing at 20th Century Fox's new Zorro movie. The Mexican actor will play the masked adventurer as a vengeful vigilante in a post-apocalyptic world, according to Variety.

Zorro Reborn will see the dashing swashbuckler shifted from Spanish colonial California to a barren desert future, where presumably his mantra ("to avenge the helpless … to aid the oppressed") will apply to almost everyone.

Plot details are still masked, but Fox's new direction is a radical departure from recent adaptations. The last two films – 1998's The Mask of Zorro and its sequel, The Legend of Zorro (2005) – may have shown an ageing Zorro (Anthony Hopkins) passing the rapier to a successor (Antonio Banderas), but they stayed true to the setting and style of the early stories by the character's creator, Johnston McCulley. »
