Zorro Reborn may have found a director

I don't know about the rest of you, but I actually enjoyed Antonio Banderas as Zorro. The character was a perfect fit for his persona in my opinion. Just as the El Mariachi character was in DESPERADO. So when I heard they were going to reboot Zorro, I wondered who was going to fill those perfect shoes.

Then it was announced that Gael GarcĂ­a Bernal would be taking on the role in ZORRO REBORN and I was floored that I didn't think of that casting first. Go rewatch Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN if you don't think so.

This aside, Fox has been looking for a director to take on this different version of Zorro. In this flick the mythology of the character will be reinvented with Zorro acting as a masked vigilante bent on getting revenge against an evil tyrant and his gang of mercenaries.

Ricardo de Montreuil, who is responsible for MANCORA which took home the World Drama category at the Sundance Film Festival 2008.

You guys up for this version of Zorro?
