Z Jonas Cuaron Gael Garcia Bernal

Deadline is reporting that Gael Garcia Bernal has been cast in the title role of Jonas Cuaron's futuristic Zorro reboot Z. If you're getting some déjà vu, it's because the ROSEWATER and THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES actor was previously attached to play the masked swashbuckler back in 2012 when the project was still titled ZORRO REBORN. Cuaron and Bernal recently worked together on the upcoming drama/thriller DESIERTO.

In a statement, producer Mark Amin of Sobini Films said, "I have always loved Gael for this role. Zorro is a hero who is charming, witty and clever. Gael possesses all those characteristic and he’s able to deliver them with a modern spin to introduce the Zorro character to a new audience."

In addition to directing, Cuaron is also writing the script for Z, which is aiming for a fall production start date. What are your thoughts on Bernal as the new Zorro?
