Zorro is getting a reboot

It looks like Zorro will be getting a reboot; it will be in the style of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight series.  Nolan was onto something with the Batman movies, now everyone is trying to recreate what he did.

…the ambition of the movie is less traditional swashbuckler, and more of a Dark Knight-style unveiling of the character with a new backstory, gritty realism and emotional core. There will be swordplay, combined with the martial arts that came from Europe and created a deadly combination of action and lethal fighting systems that combined swords, daggers, grappling and bare knuckles.

Chris Boal whose brother wrote the Hurt Locker will be writing the script.  Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald who are in charge of the Men in Black reboot is producing the new Zorro movie.

It has been sometime since the last Zorro movie so maybe something new will be all right.  A grittier image would fit really well with Zorro.  Nolan really was onto something with the whole realism thing.

Are you excited for a new Zorro movie?
