As producers have settled on the star for their futuristic take on the Zorro character, Zorro Reborn, they’re now looking to nail down a director. Gael Garcia Bernal recently emerged as the likely star in the reimagining, which finds Zorro in a post-apocalyptic wasteland “bent on getting revenge against an evil tyrant and his gang of mercenaries.” Variety reports that Peruvian helmer Ricardo de Montreuil is now a contender to direct the update, as he’s set to direct a screen test for Bernal. Montreuil is best known for helming the short film The Raven, which Universal acquired the rights to back in 2010. The Chronicle-esque sci-fi thriller short is set in an alternate and futuristic Los Angeles and is actually pretty impressive. Hit the jump for more and to watch Montreuil’s short film The Raven.
