5 reasons why the world doesn A reboot of the Zorro films are in the works (Picture: Sony Pictures) Sony Pictures have revealed that playwright Chris Boal to pen the script for its Zorro franchise reboot.
Unlike the previous two Zorro films, Deadline reports that the reboot will ray ban returns be '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.' Sony Pictures can cite Christopher Nolan's lauded Batman trilogy all they want, it won't take away from the fact that the world just doesn't need another Mask of Zorro film. At all. Here's five reasons why this film should never happen. Just like the forthcoming remakes of The Naked Gun, Annie and The Jungle Book, there is simply no need for a new Zorro film, gritty or otherwise. Think about it. What exactly is the point? Why spend time and money on a reboot when they could put that money into creating a new and original idea? Perhaps they are hoping to produce their answer to the Dark Knight trilogy or the Marvel cinematic universe, but Zorro is scraping the bottom of the barrel a bit. 2. No Antonio Banderas/Anthony Hopkins Given that this is a reboot it's unlikely we'll see either Banderas or Hopkins slip on the aviator ray ban sunglasses black mask again. Banderas was equal parts loveable and fierce as Alejandro Murrieta, and Hopkins gave the film much needed gravitas as Don Diego de la Vega. Will they cast a complete unknown? Will either Banderas or Hopkins make a cameo to reassure the sceptics? The Mask of Zorro was out in 1998, which makes the film sixteen years old. Zorro has largely fallen out of public consciousness since then. No one cares about Zorro any more, not when there's Captain America, Godzilla, Guardians of the Galaxy and a new Jurassic Park to look forward to. Anthony Hopkins and Antonio Banderas were great in the original film (Picture: Sony Pictures) 4. The Legend of Zorro was naff 2005 sequel The Legend of Zorro made the mistake of thinking another Zorro film was warranted. The Mask of Zorro was actually a decent, fun film that was fine as a standalone film, but it was tarnished by the sequel. Catherine Zeta Jones wasn't brilliant at the slapstick stuff (the pipe smoking scene was especially cringe), and the whole thing felt more like a Channel 5, Sunday afternoon TV movie. A reboot could wipe out the memory of this, but if it flops we may end up yearning for The Legend of Zorro which Sony definitely don't want.
Sony thinks it ray ban masculino is a good idea to give Men In Black another whirl, despite the third film being atrocious. offers on ray ban sunglasses However, the concept of Men In Black has much more legs than Zorro.
