Variety is reporting that Dope star Kiersey Clemons is set to join Gael Garcia Bernal in the upcoming Zorro reboot Z, which is being written and directed by Jonas Cuaron (Gravity).
Described as a reimagining of the classic swashbuckler, Z is said to offer a post-apocalyptic take on the myth of Zorro, set in the near future where a masked and caped stranger takes on tyrants. Bernal will be donning the mask as the pulp hero, while Clemons’ role is being kept under wraps for the time being.
Clemons was recently seen in the festival hit Hearts Beat Loud, and has the Jason Blum-produced Sweetheart incoming later this year, along with a role in the fourth season of TBS’ comedy series Angie Tribeca. She also remains attached to play the character of Iris West in Warner Bros.’ Flash movie Flashpoint, despite her scenes being cut from last year’s Justice League.
