Meet your newest masked swashbuckler, Gael Garcia Bernal. According to Variety, the actor has been cast as Zorro for the upcoming movie, "Zorro Reborn."

Although details surrounding the project are scarce, it will be written as a futuristic reboot (no word on whether "futuristic" means present-day or the year 3000), separating it from the Antonio Banderas "Zorro" movies.

Bernal's credits include "Y Tu Mama Tambien," "The Motorcycle Diaries" and "Babel." Although he's relatively unknown to mainstream American audiences, his role as Zorro will almost certainly change that.

"Zorro Reborn" is tentatively slated for a 2014 release date.
