Fire up the Gender-O-Tron! Another Hollywood gender swapping is required. Prepare for alteration:
This time Robert Rodriguez is behind it, and the character up for the Hollywood gender realignment surgery is Zorro.
He is teaming up with his writer-director sister Rebecca Rodriguez (Snowpiercer) to bring the tale of the masked vigilante from South of the border to the big screen once more.
Surprise, surprise, it’s a contemporary take. Sola Dominguez, an underground artist who fights for social justice as a version of the mythical Zorro, finds herself hunted by criminals after she crosses them.
Both Rodriguez’s will write the series with Rebecca helming. Modern Family star Sofia Vergara will exec produce.
CBS Studios and Universal TV will work on the show. This is a return for Rodriguez as he was originally set to direct the Banderas and Zeta-Jones movie 20 years ago. He left and Martin Campbell took over.
Will he stay the course this time? Does anyone want this? Does it seem to have season 2 cancellation written all over it?
