Gravity writer Jonas Cuaron to pen and helm new Zorro film

02.05.2016

Jonas Cuaron is taking a crack at Zorro.

Announced today, the GRAVITY writer is set to pen and direct the film simply being titled as Z, which will once again dive into the legendary masked character of Zorro. The Lantica Media and Sobini Films picture is also apparently ready to go, with principal photography lined up for this summer, although no future release date has been earmarked.

“We are quite fortunate to have Jonás on this film,” commented Lantica Media's CEO Antonio Gennari.  “His love of cinema is evident in his work and he is very talented in his ability to tell a compelling story.  We look forward to seeing where his vision will take us.”  

Cuaron was recently the prime creative force on DESIERTO which won the International Critics' Award at last year's Toronto International Film Festival, so he certainly has some steam behind his candidacy for the film. And while there was some concern over the idea of a futuristic Zorro for the previously disclosed ZORRO REBORN project, it would appear that script has been scrapped with Z wholly being Cuaron's vision. Word circulating is that the film would still take place in the near future in order to put a fresh spin on the character, but what exactly that means for the character has yet to be revealed with details being kept very tightly under wraps.

I loved the films with Antonio Banderas. Not sure if I like the idea of it being set in the near future though. I guess we'll see.

Could Be Good

Mask Of Zorro was awesome. Mark Of Zorro was terrible. I've been noticing some good movies being made from bad ideas (like updating Zorro to the future) so hopefully this is one of them.

You mean Legend of Zorro was terrible? Cause Mark of Zorro with Tyrone Power and Basil Rathbone is one of the greatest movies ever.

Hopefully they get a Latino to play Zorro

Antonio Banderas was a good Zorro, so I hope they continue with casting someone of Spanish descent for the role. I wouldn't mind Oscar Issac as Zorro and possibly Benicio Del Toro for the villain.
