Cast and crew of the currently-filming 'Legend Of Zorro' open their set to TV show Entertainment Tonight, giving us a first look at the sequel.
Returning stars Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta Jones spoke enthusiastically about the project, the original being a personal favorite for both.
"This film holds a lot of meaning to me, both professionally and personally," Catherine says. "I actually met my husband [Michael Douglas] when I was promoting the film in Deauville, France, and it was such an amazing time for me, being completely unknown, really, in America or in Mexico, where I shot the first one. It's a very important film for me and it's very close to my heart."
For Banderas, though, it was bitter-sweet revisiting. He does his own stunt, and the movie asks for lots of them, with numerous scenes of sword-fighting and horse-riding.
"This movie hurts a little bit when you're doing it," the actor laughs, "but it doesn't matter -- it doesn't matter when you go to the movie theatre and you see the people laughing and having a great time. All the sacrifices, we shouldn't even make remarks about them, because it's natural, it's our profession -- it's what we do."
'Legend's story picks up 10 years later, as Alejandro, Elena and their 10-year-old son have settled in a comfortable family living. Zorro is still active though, and even more when greedy and powerful landlords threaten the territory, and soon Zorro's own family.
"I think it's a rarity to have a sequel that takes seven years to come out, but the script feels right and that's why we're here." Concluded the duo.
You can get a video look at the production over here.
But for the whole movie, we shall all be patient. 'Legend Of Zorro' can only be expected in theatres for October 2005.
