Post Apocalyptic ‘Zorro Reborn’
When I heard that 20th Century Fox’s reboot of the classic Zorro franchise would take place in the future, I wanted to shit all over it. However, upon hearing the pitch, I may have to rethink things. 24 Frames, the other production company behind Zorro Reborn has this to say about the relaunch of the beloved character:
“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,’”
Wow. That’s a bold claim. The filmmakers are going to live or die by that claim. When you put yourself on a pedestal with Leone and the Coen Brothers, there is no room for disappointment. Should be interesting to see if they can deliver.
