"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
There’s still no word on the status of that post-apocalyptic Zorro Reborn movie we heard about earlier this year (and thanks be for that), but Sony has a Zorro project of its own in the works that offers what appears to be a much truer rendition of the character. It’s an origin story based on Isabel Allende’s 2005 novel, and Deadline reports that writers are now set for the project.
Sony has hired Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia for the reboot, although there’s no hoped-for time frame for the production. Federman and Scaia bring with them a wealth of television experience, having worked on Charlie’s Angels (still ongoing), Human Target, Jericho and Warehouse 13. Sony last tapped Zorro for the 2005 film starring Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones. This reboot should make for a fun time, especially when you compare it to the possibility of seeing the character rendered as a post-apocalyptic vigilante.
