Gael Garcia Bernal is the new Z! Z Stands for Zorro! In the Future!

Alright, some strange news here.

Actor Gael Garcia Bernal, known for the critically beloved Y Tu Mama Tambien, has now joined the upcoming Zorro reboot, currently titled Z, to be directed by Jonas Cuaron.

Here’s the kicker: Z is set in the future as opposed to the past.

I’m going to be honest here, this sounds stupid. At that point, why even call it a Zorro reboot when it very clearly is an original (and wholly stupid sounding) film that takes elements from Zorro. That’s like calling Avatar a Dances with Wolves reboot. This whole premise is just sad and disappointing.

On the bright side, the people who have read the script have called it quite good. Do I trust those people? Not really.

I honestly don’t know what to think here. I like Bernal. I even like the young Cuaron (who assisted his father with Gravity). But this is not starting out well for me.

What do you think? Is Z going to be the next big thing? What’s your favorite strange reboot? Let me know!
