New Zorro set in the Future

The news is that 20th Century Fox are going to reboot Zorro but set him in a post-apocalyptic setting. The film rumored to be called Zorro Reborn will be more of a vigilante.

To me this sounds just awful and they should just make the movie but call it something else.

A reboot titled “Zorro Reborn” is being developed at Fox that will remove the character from his historical California or Mexico setting.

Unlike many of the previous Zorros (real name: Don Diego de la Vega) brandishing whips and swords, the hero of the new installment will live in the future — specifically a desolate and post-apocalyptic one, according to a person familiar with the film who asked not to be identified. A Fox spokeswoman declined to comment.

In this version, Zorro will be less a caped crusader for justice than a one-man vigilante force bent on revenge, in a western story that has echoes of both Sergio Leone and “No Country for Old Men.”

The movie will be directed by Rpin Suwannath, a previsualization specialist who worked on a number of the “X-Men,” “Matrix” and “Chronicles of Narnia” movies. (Previsualiation is the Hollywood art of conceiving and generating images, usually for an effects-driven movie, before filming has begun. Visual-effects specialists are hot generally, with Fox recently setting the viz kid Tim Miller to direct “Deadpool.”) The project, a person close to it cautioned, is in early development.

What do you think?
