Sewell in Zorro Sequel
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."
