The Flash star Kiersey Clemons is set to star in Jonás Cuarón’s Zorro film Z opposite Coco’s Gael Garcia Bernal, ScreenDaily reports.
Z will be directed and written by Cuarón and financed by the Dominican Republic-based Lantica Media.
Set in the near future, Z reimagines the Mexican swashbuckling crime fighter. The movie is a collabrative effort between Lantica Pictures and Mark Amin’s Sobini Films.
Sobini Films and Lantica Media are producing the swashbuckling production while Pantelion International has launched sales in Berlin and the UTA Independent Film Group represents the film’s U.S. rights.
Clemons most recently starred in Hearts Beat Loud, which was sold to Sony Pictures Classics following it’s debut at the Sundance Film Festival. She is also set to appear in the Jason Blum movie Sweetheart, and is still attached to play love interest Iris West in The Flash at Warner Bros. Pictures.
This has caused some speculation among fans of the DC Extended Universe who have been actively questioning if Clemons will still be able to reprise her role as Barry Allen’s love interest, Iris West. With her scene being cut from Justice League and new directors it is possible that she may be moving on. She will be more actively involved in production for that film compared to the standalone The Flash film which is rumored to start principal photography later this year.
