It was recently confirmed by Lantica Media and Sobini Films that Jonás Cuarón, the screenwriter of Gravity, will write and direct the new Zorro movie simply titled as Z.

Mark Amin, CEO of Sobini Films, said: “I was impressed with Jonás’s command of action and suspense, his great visual eye, and the strong performances he elicited from his actors.

“His love of cinema is evident in his work” added Latica Media’s CEO Antonio Gennari, “and he is very talented in his ability to tell a compelling story. We look forward to seeing where his vision will take us.”

The film was previously described to have a very different take to the classic Zorro films, set in an apocalyptic world rather than a historical one.

The character of Zorro was created in 1919 by Johnston McCulley and has seen several adaptations into films, comics and tv series, none like this though.

My name is Jonathan Snelling. I’ve been a movie fan for a long time now and last year completed a degree in Film and Television Studies at Aberystwyth University. It’s hard to choose a favourite film but I’ve always been a major fan of Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga. I’m really interested to see how Ben Affleck does in Dawn of Justice as it's set to be an incredible film. I’m usually willing to see any genre but naturally some more so than others.
