Gael Garcia Bernal To Play Zorro in New Futuristic Reboot

The name may sound vaguely familiar and you have surely seen his face and acting talent on display in Amores Perros, Y Tu Mama Tambien, The Motorcycle Diaries, Bad Education and The Science of Sleep. Now after having built up a solid resume of independent films, actor Gael Garcia Bernal is making the leap to "tentpole actor" status.
 
Fox has tapped Bernal to play Zorro in a futuristic reboot, titled Zorro Reborn. The plot will re-invent the masked swordsman by transplanting him into a post-apocolyptic future with a revenge tale that pays homage to Sergio Leone's films and the Coen Bros. No Country For Old Men.
 
While you try to wrap your mind around that, Fox is still looking for a director to guide this film.
 
In the meanwhile, are you curious to see what Bernal can bring to the Zorro role?
