Antonio Banderas has spoken about reprising his role as Zorro after it was revealed that Quentin Tarantino’s Django/Zorro crossover film has been canned.
Tarantino had prepared an exciting crossover film that would bring together iconic western character Django and beloved pulp hero Zorro, based on a crossover comic series. Tarantino put his spin on the former in 2012’s Django Unchained.
Now that the project is stalling, Zorro actor Antonio Banderas has praised the exciting concept.
Quentin Tarantino’s Django/Zorro crossover is dead for now
Speaking to USA Today, Antonio Banderas was asked if he had spoken to Quentin Tarantino about the exciting crossover. The actor said: “He spoke to me I think on Oscar night when I was nominated for Pain and Glory.
“He just walked up to me and I was like, ‘In your hands? Yes man!’ Because Quentin just has the nature to make these kinds of films and bring quality to them.”
Banderas said the Kill Bill director has a knack for creating footage for “’60s and ’70s B-movies” and doing “something really interesting.”
“We’ve never worked together, but because of him, because of Jamie Foxx, and because of Zoro when he’s a little older, it would be great. It would be awesome and fun and crazy,” Banderas continued.
However, Banderas isn’t sure if he’d reprise the role: “I don’t know… I’ll be 62 this summer, so I don’t know if I’ll be able to play this character the way I used to. ”
Unfortunately, the project’s screenwriter, Jerrod Carmichael, has confirmed that the film is dead. “It’s actually an incredible script that came out of this Django/Zorro and I’d love for Sony to figure it out, but I realize it’s impossible. But I still think we wrote a $500 million movie,” he told GQ.
Quentin Tarantino is rumored to be directing a Kill Bill sequel as his final film before retirement, but we’re still clinging to the Zoro dream.
