Fringe creators Orci and Kurtzman pitch a modern day Sleepy Hollow television series

20 July 2012 11:12 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are riding high on a creative success streak that only rivals that of their frequent collaborator, Jj Abrams. Between the Transformers and Star Trek films, the duo have also been responsible for Mission: Impossible III, Cowboys & Aliens, The Legend Of Zorro, the upcoming Ender's Game, Van Helsing and Mummy reboots, and the television series Fringe and Hawaii Five-0. Orci and Kurtzman look to be getting back to television with their pitch for a new »

Rufus Sewell

15 June 2012 8:38 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Rufus Sewell vowed to give up playing bad guys and cads, then found himself out of work for months. So now he's back – in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter – as a 5,000-year-old bloodsucker

Three years ago, Rufus Sewell gave up bad guys for good. After an early career steaming up teatimes in Middlemarch and Cold Comfort Farm, he slipped, in his 30s, into a rut of rotters – cruel toffs on horseback in films such as A Knight's Tale, The Legend of Zorro and Tristan and Isolde. At 40, he renounced them for better men. Men with names like Tom Builder (from HBO's The Pillars of the Earth) and Dr Jacob Hood (police procedural Eleventh Hour), and Zen, the cool Italian detective from the Michael Dibdin books adapted for the BBC.

Next week Sewell, now 44, can be seen as "Adam, lead vampire" in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, a 3D film from Timur Bekmambetov, »

Emerson Joins Woody Allen's Latest

3 June 2012 10:54 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Michael Emerson has been best known for a while now as the creepy, manipulative, but in his own way heroic, Ben Linus on Lost. We’re guessing he’ll probably be a little bit less Machiavellian when he joins the cast of Woody Allen’s latest, untitled film. Allen’s still-under-the-usual-Woody-wraps project sees the writer-director returning to the Us for the first time since he began his series of European movies a few years ago.Almost nothing is known about the movie, aside from the fact that Sally Hawkins will be playing a fun neurotic type, with Cate Blanchett as a more balance woman.The Lost veteran is joining an ensemble that already includes recent Allen veteran Alec Baldwin, Bobby Cannavale and Alexander Kanellakos. It’s predicted to begin shooting this summer in New York and San Francisco.Emerson, who was last in a wide release with The Legend Of Zorro, »

'Lost' Star Michael Emerson Joins Woody Allen's Next Untitled Project

1 June 2012 9:34 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though it's been years since we've seen Michael Emerson as the creepy and mysterious Ben Linus on "Lost," the actor is still making waves on TV in "Person of Interest" on CBS, which might be one of the better shows you're not watching right now. However, whilst on hiatus from the crime thriller series, Emerson will make a return to high profile films for the first time since The Legend of Zorro in 2005. Deadline has word that Emerson has snagged an unknown role in the next film from Woody Allen, which is currently untitled and, as with all of the New York filmmaker's projects, has the script and plot kept tightly under wraps. As of now, the only details we have include the involvement of Cate Blanchett, Bradley Cooper, Alec Baldwin (who will be seen in Allen's To Rome with Love later this year), and the film will be shooting »

TV Recap: “Once Upon A Time” Season 1, Episode 20, “The Stranger”

30 April 2012 2:48 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Once Upon A Time

“The Stranger” Air Date: 4/29/2012

It took 20 episodes, but you’ll finally know who Eoin Bailey’s August/The Stranger is by the end of the first act in this Sunday’s episode. Last week, the writers did a solid job making us think he was Rumpelstiltskin’s son Baelfire, but ABC pulled the ole switcheroo at the last moment. It’s almost impossible to review this episode without revealing who he is in fairy tale lore because even the most basic plot outline makes it overwhelmingly obvious, so you have been warned (that was a Spoiler Alert, by the way). Skip to the last paragraph for my final summarization of the episode if you don’t want it Spoiled.

We begin at Emma and Mary Margaret’s bachelorette pad, where August is finishing up fashioning a new lock on their front door, one that Regina wouldn’t have a key to. »

Trailer for 'People Like Us,' a Drama from the Writer of 'Transformers'

29 March 2012 10:14 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Looking at the screenwriting credits for Alex Kurtzman it is such a mixed bag of quality it's hard to believe he was involved in each of the projects outside of the obvious genre similarities. Kurtzman was part of the writing team on films such as Mission: Impossible III and Star Trek and then you look a little deeper and he also wrote Transformers, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, The Legend of Zorro, The Island and Cowboys & Aliens. To what level he was involved in each project is unclear so I don't know whether or not I should get excited for his directorial debut, People Like Us. Then again, it's not as if we are talking about a film in the same genre as those I just listed off. On top of making his directorial debut, Kurtzman also co-wrote People Like Us with his frequent writing partner Roberto Orci as well »

Gael Garcia Bernal cast as the lead in Zorro Reborn

19 February 2012 9:34 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sony’s post apocalyptic take on the Zorro legend has found its lead in Gael Garcia Bernal.

Mexican handsome man Gael Garcia Bernal looks set to swish his sword on screens (not in a Y Tu Mamá También way), as he’s signed on to play Zorro in a new take of the character. This time, said character will be appearing in a post apocalyptic version of the story, titled Zorro Reborn.

Full details of the story are unclear at this stage, other than we can expect Bernal’s Zorro is on a revenge mission. The script was originally written by Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy (Harker) and Glenn Gers (Fracture) has subsequently been called in to provide a re-write. The film is currently without a director but with Bernal now attached we should expect the job to be filled shortly, as 20th Century Fox seems keen on the project. »

Gael Garcia Bernal to star in Zorro Reborn

17 February 2012 7:31 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gael Garcia Bernal (Y Tu Mama Tambien, The Motorcycle Diaries) is set to play the lead role in Zorro Reborn, a sci-fi reimagining of the Zorro mythology that will take place in an apocalyptic wasteland. This futuristic take on the story of the Spanish swordsman will portray him as a masked vigilante fueled by vengeance.

Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy (Harker) have written the script along with Glenn Gers (Fracture), and 20th Century Fox is currently seeking a director for the project.

Zorro was last seen on the big screen in Martin Campbell’s 2005 film The Legend of Zorro, where he was played by Antonio Banderas. The studio behind that film, Sony Pictures, is developing its own reboot of Zorro based on the Chilean author Isabel Allende’s novel about his origin story.

Garcia Bernal will next be appearing opposite Will Ferrell in the Spanish-language comedy Casa de mi Padre, »

Gael Garcia Bernal Reborn As Zorro

17 February 2012 7:01 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

20th Century Fox has found its lead actor for Zorro Reborn. Variety reports that the studio has decided to cast Gael Carcia Bernal (Y Tu Mama Tambien, The Science of Sleep, Blindness) after a prolonged search. The project is planned as "a futuristic reboot of the Zorro mythology that will not be set in California or Mexico, despite the story's Western themes." Garcia Bernal would play "the Spanish swordsman as a masked vigilante bent on revenge."

Zorro Reborn was scripted by Glenn Gers, along with Harker scribes Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy. No director is currently on board the project, which is being produced by Mark Amin, Cami Winikoff, and David Higgins. Antonio Banderas was the most recent Zorro in Martin Campbell's The Legend of Zorro. Sony is also developing its own "origin story about the swashbuckling hero based on Isabel Allende's 2005 novel Zorro."

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. »

Bernal To Play Zorro

17 February 2012 12:01 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal has signed on to bring masked swordsman Zorro back to the big screen, according to industry reports.

The Motorcycle Diaries star will lead the cast of Zorro Reborn.

The project will be the first major Zorro film since 2005's The Legend of Zorro, in which Antonio Banderas played the swashbuckling Latino legend.

Variety reports Sony executives are also developing a prequel to their two hit Banderas films, based on Isabel Allende's 2005 novel Zorro. »

Gael Garcia Bernal is ‘Zorro Reborn’ in Futurstic Reboot of the Masked Avenger

16 February 2012 11:37 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal will lead “Zorro Reborn”, 20th Century Fox’s futuristic reboot of the famed masked sword-wielding Spanish avenger.

The B-movie style adaptation will surprisingly not be set in Mexico or California and will instead adopt a desolate & post-apocalyptic setting as a ‘one-man vigilante force bent on revenge seeking’. Revenge on who or what or even what the catalyst was for Armageddon is anyone’s guess but we are told the proposed movie would be part Sergio Leone Western/part No Country For Old Men.

The rather desperate sounding tentpole comes from Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy, the writers behind the Dracula re-imagining movie Harker at WB which Unknown director Jaume Collet-Serra is to helm; a King Arthur reboot titled Pendragon; and a re-imagining of The Count of Monte Cristo that would be set in the London underworld titled Once Upon A Time In Hell and it »

Gael García Bernal is Reborn … as Zorro

16 February 2012 7:25 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Zorro goes into outer space. Okay, maybe not outer space (hopefully), but just the future. A futuristic, sword swashbuckling adventure, if you will. After searching high and low for a smooth Spanish leading man to take over where Antonio Banderas left off in two previous movies for Columbia Pictures, 20th Century Fox has now settled their sights on Mexican actor Gael García Bernal to take the lead in their own version of Zorro. Unlike the Banderas “Zorro” movies (he made two, 1998′s “The Mask of Zorro” and 2005′s “The Legend of Zorro”, both co-starring Catherine Zeta-Jones), “Zorro Reborn” (yes, that’s the title they’re going with — sounds like something that would end up direct-to-dvd, doesn’t it? Or a parody of the previous films) will eschew the usual Zorro setting (circa 18th century California) for a “futuristic reboot”. I guess that means Don Diego de la Vega will be »

Gael Garcia Bernal Makes His Mark as New 'Zorro'

16 February 2012 5:23 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Gael Garcia Bernal better start practicing making a "Z" with a sword.

The "Science of Sleep" star will play the legendary masked avenger in 20th Century Fox's futuristic take on the character, "Zorro Reborn," according to Variety.

"Zorro Reborn" was first announced in April of last year, with Fox moving the action to some place other than California or Mexico -- and to some other time as well, as this Zorro will be a masked vigilante hell-bent on revenge as he traverses a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

"Mad Zorro," anyone?

Fox's "Reborn" is not related in any way to Sony's double-bill of "Zorro" films starring Antonio Banderas, "The Mask of Zorro" (1998) and "The Legend of Zorro" (2005). Sony is reportedly planning its own new "Zorro" project, which will be -- not surprisingly -- a prequel/origin story.

"Zorro Reborn" was originally going to be directed by Rpin Suwannath, a previsualization specialist who worked »

Gael García Bernal: Zorro Reboot

16 February 2012 5:02 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Gael García Bernal is keeping himself busy. According to Variety, García Bernal is attached to star in the futuristic Zorro reboot Zorro Reborn for 20th Century Fox. He's also to be featured opposite Will Ferrell and Diego Luna in Matt Piedmont's comedy Casa de mi Padre, and in Nicole Kassell's A Little Bit of Heaven, with Kate Hudson and Peter Dinklage. And that's not all: García Bernal is reportedly planning on making a documentary about immigration, and is attached to star as Panamanian boxer Roberto Duran in Jonathan Jakubowicz's Hands of Stone, opposite Al Pacino and Ryan Kwanten. Now, Variety explains that Zorro Reborn will be quite different from the Zorro of Tyrone Power, Frank Langella, Antonio Banderas, or Guy Williams. (Or George Hamilton, for that matter.) For starters, Zorro Reborn will not be set in Old California, then a part of Mexico. Nor will Zorro be a light-hearted sword fighter. »

Gael Garcia Bernal Set as Lead in Futuristic Reboot Zorro Reborn

16 February 2012 4:42 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox has finally settled on its lead in their upcoming Zorro reboot Zorro Reborn. Variety reports that Gael Garcia Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries) is attached to play the Spanish swordsman. The film is a fresh take on material that was most recently mined in Martin Campbell’s The Mask of Zorro and The Legend of Zorro. As we previously reported, Zorro Reborn will not take place in the classic Western setting of Mexico or California, but will instead be set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Moreover, Zorro will be less of a hero this time around, as the story paints the character as “a masked vigilante bent on revenge.” Bernal is an excellent actor and, I think, a nice choice to play Zorro. I’m not necessarily thrilled with the “futuristic” take on the story as I think Bernal would be swell in a classic swashbuckling flick, but Fox apparently has other plans. »

Now this sounds interesting. Fox will produce a version of the Zorro story which will take place in the future, and have signed the great Mexican thesp Gael Garcia Bernal (Babel, The Motorcycle Diaries, The Science Of Sleep) to play the role. According to Variety.. Pic is a futuristic reboot of the classic Zorro mythology that will not be set in California or Mexico, despite the story's Western themes.

The script for Fox's movie, which has still to sign a director, was written by Glenn Gers, Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy. »
