Gael Garcia Bernal

Gael García Bernal may not be the most familiar face, but he is signing on to a project that will hopefully make him more of a household name. New reports confirm that the actor will now play the swashbuckling hero Zorro from Jonás Cuarón, son of Gravity‘s Alfonso Cuarón, in the reboot simply titled Z.

More on the story below.

A new futuristic take on the story of Zorro titled Zorro Reborn has been in the works for many years now, with Y Tu Mamá También, Amores Perros, and The Motorcycle Diaries star Gael Garcia Bernal once attached to star in the movie for 20th Century Fox. Other names that were mentioned as potential writers and directors as they tried to make the movie happen include Bryan Singer, Ricardo de Montreuil, Gary Whitta, and Justin Marks. But in the end, it never happened.

Now the movie is no longer set up at Fox, but it is ready to make another run at becoming a reality. It’s being reported that Zorro Reborn is now set up at Lantica Media, and it is interestingly described as a “post-apocalyptic take on the myth” that’s set in the near future but still maintains the whole mysterious stranger wearing a mask and cape working against oppressors in the best interest of the less fortunate. Whether this is the same “futuristic” idea that’s been planned all along or if the post-apocalyptic twist is a new spin on it is unclear at the moment.

Zorro Sony Reboot Image Header

Hollywood’s obsession with giving audiences a dark and gritty origins story continues with Sony’s planned Zorro film. While many of those stories have focused on comic book heroes, Sony plans to give a new darker origins story to the swashbuckling Zorro. This has been planned for quite a while actually, with some of the stories falling through the cracks. But now the studio has hired Chris Boal (brother of The Hurt Locker‘s Mark Boal) to pen the script.

According to Deadline, Sony’s Zorro movie won’t be a traditional swashbuckler, but instead will go way of The Dark Knight:

Disney In Depth: 23 Fun Facts From ‘Disney Trivia from the Vault’

Disney In Depth banner

"Disney Trivia from the Vault" Book CoverWe Disney aficionados simply cannot obtain enough neat tidbits of trivia, seeking answers to everyday quandaries that strike us. Fortunately, Disney Editions just released a fine trivia book that puts many questions to rest. Dave Smith, Chief Archivist Emeritus of the Walt Disney Archives, has long been known to help fans with this endeavor in his legendary “Ask Dave” column. Now, Smith, author of this fact-filled title Disney Trivia from the Vault: Secrets Revealed and Questions Answered, has compiled together over 1,000 questions, providing responses and well-explained descriptions as well.

In this edition of Disney In Depth, I’ll impart my thoughts on this book, and also share some of the more unique questions and answers that you can find inside Disney Trivia from the Vault. I’ll give you 23 fun facts. Why 23? If you’re a Disney fan you should know the reason. (1923 is the year the company was founded).

At just over 250 pages, this eight-chapter book, each dedicated to a different aspect of The Walt Disney Company, contains a vast variety of little-known pieces of trivia that you can bring up at social events. Well, I’m not sure how relevant bringing up the “Kids Amateur Dog Show” at Disneyland from the 1960s would be, but would you know about that had you not picked up a copy of this? I don’t think so. The allure of trivia books is that they contain such oddball details, each with fascinating and extensive stories, making this a treasure trove.

Gael Garcia Bernal

Mexican actor Gael García Bernal is immensely talented, as anyone who has seen his work in foreign films such as Y Tu Mamá También, Amores Perros, The Motorcycle Diaries, and The Science of Sleep will tell you.

It’s been assumed by many that he would rise up to become quite the superstar. but whether through his own preference or lack of exposure, he’s remained somewhat in the shadows. The actor has appeared in some more mainstream titles like Letters to Juliet, Blindness, and Best Picture nominee Babel, but now it appears he could be stepping out into that Hollywood spotlight, as so many have expected him to eventually do.

Dynamite Entertainment: Zorro Rides Again #2Zorro Rides Again #2
Written by Matt Wagner
Art by Esteve Polls
Colors by Oscar Manuel Martin
Letters by Simon Bowland
Cover by Matt Wagner
Dynamite Entertainment
Release date: August 31, 2011
Cover Price: $3.99

I’ve always found Zorro interesting, although I sometimes confuse him with the Lone Ranger. (Even though the Ranger has a sidekick and Zorro doesn’t, figure that out.) Zorro Rides Again is the kind of comic book that shows why comic books get to keep the word book in their name. This book takes place in a Spanish colony, where corruption runs rampant, and the weak need to be defended, by none other than Zorro!
