The fictional character of Zorro, portrayed in multiple projects over the years and most recently by Antonio Banderas in multiple films, is getting a reboot of sorts. Alex Rivera (The Infiltrators) will write and direct Zorro 2.0 for Sobini Films. The project will portray Oscar de la Vega as ‘z0rr0,’ an undocumented hacker who fights back against “a secret government unit that attacked his mother, he discovers a high-tech conspiracy that threatens not only his family but the world,” per Deadline. Rivera went on to describe his vision as “visually elevated, socially grounded, sci-fi cinema.” Interesting take.
