Sewell in Zorro Sequel
Legend of Zorro casting.
July 27, 2004 - British actor Rufus Sewell (Dark City, A Knight's Tale)
has been cast in the Mask of Zorro sequel, according to today's Hollywood
Reporter. The film, which is ramping up for a Mexico-based shoot, is now
reportedly titled The
Legend of Zorro.The trade adds that Sewell will portray Armand, a character
described as "Zorro's rival for the affection of Elena." All of the principle
cast from the first film is returning with director Martin Campbell once again taking the
helm. "The script is fantastic," star Antonio Banderas recently revealed.
"Everyone will be back - [executive producer] Steven
Spielberg, director Martin Campbell, Catherine Zeta-Jones."Sir Anthony
Hopkins will even be back as Don Diego de la Vega, even though his character
perished in The Mask
of Zorro. "He has a lot more to tell me. It has a supernatural
element," said Banderas.
Last we heard, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio had written the
screenplay. The story, which is mostly being kept under wraps, features Elena doing some
swashbuckling of her own. Director Campbell says, "[Catherine Zeta-Jones] will
have a great role. Her character will definitely be on par with Antonio's this time.
... This is much more than your typical sequel. It's a full-out new film that uses
the same two central characters."
