From Movie Line, ((Unlike many of the previous Zorros (real name: Don Diego de la Vega) brandishing whips and swords, the hero of the new installment will live in the future — specifically a desolate and post-apocalyptic one, according to a person familiar with the film who asked not to be identified. A Fox spokeswoman declined to comment.
In this version, Zorro will be less a caped crusader for justice than a one-man vigilante force bent on revenge, in a western story that has echoes of both Sergio Leone and No Country for Old Men.))
Uh, I think someone in Hollywood has really lost his mind. Someone wants the restart the Zorro story…in the future.
Really, you're going to go the Post-apocalyptic route? Why not give Zorro a new coat of paint by setting him in the time period the other movies were in. Heck, they could tie the new movie into the recent ones with the new Zorro being the son of the recent movie of Zorro. (Sherlock Holmes)
But to go with a future Zorro set in a dead land just seems wrong to me. Sure, you could do it in a comic book, but not a movie. I just don't think people will want to see it. Okay, the second Zorro movie wasn't that good, but do we really need to distance the new one from the last movie?I just don't like it.
