The writer of Gravity is making a new Zorro movie

There's a new Zorro movie coming, Heroic Hollywood reports. It's called Z, and Jonás Cuarón, who wrote Gravity, is set to write and direct.

Cuarón also wrote and directed 2013's Aningaaq, a short companion film to Gravity. It told the story of the Inuit fisherman who spoke to Sandra Bullock's character in Gravity during a distress call to Earth. With a budget of just $100,000, Cuarón managed to make a hypnotic short that built on a story many already found sufficiently captivating.

1998's The Mask of Zorro and 2005's The Legend of Zorro both starred Antonio Banderas as Alejandro Murrieta, the dashing rapscallion trained in the art of sword-fighting by Don Diego de la Vega. There are no details yet on a cast or release date for Z.
