A new series of El Zorro is being started developing by Secuoya Studios with John Gertz. As we know, John Gertz is the founder of Zorro Studios and the producer of 11 Zorro movies.
And now, he is developing a new version of the El Zorro movies into series in collaboration with Andy Kaplan and former Sony exec Jesús Torres. And the lead producer is going to be Los Angeles-based Secuoya Studios for the reboot series.
The franchise’s characters will be modernized in the new Zorro series
In the past, we have also heard about a new series of Zorro already being planned. And a strong woman character was going to be in front this time. It seems that ideas are much likely the same but just a few names seem to be changed such as the series’ director and screenwriters.
The new Zorro‘s director is Jonás Cuarón. Glenn Gers and Jonás Cuarón are writing the series screenplay. On the other hand, the revealed names of the series’s cast are Gael García Bernal as Zorro and Kiersey Clemons as Zoe by now. But we don’t know anything about the rest of the characters and Zorro’s release date yet.
David Martínez said that “The new version of Zorro will update the franchise’s characters with reference to modern times and include a large female presence. This is one of the biggest IPs, not only in the Spanish-speaking territories but the world.”
