Jonas Cuaron, the co-writer of Gravity has just come on board to write and director a new Zorro film called Z! Cuaron recently wrote and directed Desierto which won the International Critics’ Award at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival and is slated for release this spring by STX. Lantica Media and Sobini films are producing Z.
Lantica Media will finance the film which is due to begin principal photography Summer 2016 at the Pinewood Dominican Republic Studios. Sources tell me the new film will be a new take on the beloved masked character of Zorro.
With diversity being a big deal right now in Hollywood, I’m thrilled that a Latin guy is writing and directing a Zorro film. Interested to see Jonas’ take on the superhero and also who he casts. Will be tracking this one. Stay tuned as more develops.
