MOVIES: Zorro Reborn finds its swordsman

by

20th Century Fox is bringing Zorro back to the big screen, and it’s tapped Gael Garcia Bernal as the masked swordsman.

According to Variety, this version of Zorro won’t be set in the old west, but rather a “futuristic reboot of the Zorro mythology,” with Mexican actor Bernal playing “a Spanish swordman as a masked vigilante bent on revenge.”

Wow… that’s all I can say. Like the Lone Ranger, Robin Hood, and Jim Rockford, certain characters work best in very specific time periods, and having a futuristic Zorro running around seems a bit on the odd side.
