Mexican actor Gael García Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries and Babel) has been cast as the title character in ‘Zorro Reborn‘ in the 20th Century Fox reboot.

The mexican actor will play the masked vigilante in a new take on the legend.

The post-apocalyptic vision is currently in development and although still a western, it is a far cry from the usual period Californian/Mexican setting and should be an interesting take on the swashbuckling hero.

Antonio Banderas had success as the masked vigilante in ‘The Mask of Zorro‘ and ‘The Legend of Zorro‘ for Columbia Pictures.

There is still no news on who will direct the reboot but it seems the project is beginning to gather some momentum.
