Post-Apocalyptic ZORRO Movie is Still On The Way
Remember Zorro? Black mask, sword, likes to sign his name on people's chests with a Z? For years, Fox has been trying to bring us a post-apocalyptic version of this old school pulp character, and for years, it has had a difficult time moving forward. We posted some concept art for the film a couple of years ago, which you can check out here.
Well, things are finally picking up speed because Lantica Media and Sobini Films have partnered up and are ready to make it happen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the two studios are going to finance the film together and they plan to film in March of next year.
Mark Armin, CEO of Sobini Films, is very excited to get this film underway:
"This has been a fifteen year journey filled with ups and downs but it has remained my passion project over the years."
Lantica Media CEO, Antonio Gennari, had this to say:
"Every generation has its own Zorro hero and we’re proud to be able to introduce a new Zorro to this generation."
I think it's great that this is going places. Although I sometimes am against reboots and reinventions, I think there are a lot of great things that can be done with Zorro that makes him relevant for a future take. What do you think of classic characters done in a different tone? Which characters would you like to see reinvented next for film? Personally, I think a sci-fi Sherlock Holmes in the future would be rad or even a futuristic Robin Hood. Post in the comments below to give your own thoughts.
