  • SONY Pictures development of a graphic novel written by Quentin Tarantino, "Django/ Zorro." As the name implies, it is a mashup between his character, Django, and ZPI's character, Zorro. Tarantino and ZPI president, John Gertz are executive producers.  

  • A hybrid, live-action, animated Zorro feature has also been developed by SONY, combining a live-action Zorro with an animated fox. A new project under executive producer Doug Belgrad, former president of production at Sony (“Charlies Angels”), and writer David Birnbaum (“Elf”).

Entertainment and Merchandising AG. “Together with the Zorro Musical (music by the Gipsy Kings) and the ongoing online presence, more than enough material for promising licensing program with longevity.”
