It looks like Zorro is making his way back onto the big screen! Sony has signed Chris Boal to write the studio’s Zorro reboot. Not only is Boal a screenwriter, he’s also a playwright and competitive fencer. It’s rumored that they’re looking to take a Dark Knight like approach to turn it into a very dark/realistic gritty movie.
If you didn’t know, they’re working on a remake of the Jungle Book. It will be a mix of live-action and VFX with Jon Favreau acting as director for the film. It was just announced that Idris Elba will be playing the role of the Bengal Shere Khan.
