Zorro Begins: Fede Alvarez To Reboot Zorro With First Adventure, The Curse of Capistrano


Every few years it seems that a studio is rebooting or revamping the tale of Zorro with a new film or iteration of the character. Well, they're at it again. It looks as though director Fede Alvarez (Evil Dead, Don't Breathe) has been tapped to tell the latest tale about the masked swashbuckler. The latest version will be a origin tale of sorts as it will tell of what's said to be his first adventure, The Curse of Capistrano. The story was first a five part magazine serial and novel that was turned into the 1920 film, The Mark of Zorro.  

This has been in development for a while now but it looks as though Sony is finally getting to work on the project. This will be the first Zorro film release since 2005's The Legend of Zorro which saw Antonio Banderas reprise the role from 1998's The Mask of Zorro. At one time there were discussions for Banderas to return to the role one more time but it never happened. 

We'll update as we hear more.
