They got Gael Garcia Bernal to star as Zorro, because he’s awesome. The director is Rpin Suwannath, who was born with a terrible condition that destroyed vowels in his first name. He is a “previsualization specialist” – which means he hasn’t directed squat. The writers Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy also wrote a Dracula reboot called Harker, which might star Russell Crowe as a Scotland Yard detective named Harker who investigates the Dracula murders. So now you have yet another film to look forward to!
Johnston McCulley wrote the original pulp stories, for more Zorro information you can Google “Zorro” yourself.
No word on that Samson in the Future script, but at current rates it won’t be a film until 2015 at the earliest..
