FADE IN:

EXT. VILLAGE. 1820's LOS ANGELES - DAY

A crowd of PEONS watch SOLDIERS posting a DEAD OR ALIVE Bulletin for the capture of Zorro. Suddenly, a galloping horse flies into the crowd. ZORRO marks his signature Z into the side of the building. Galloping from the opposite direction, another Zorro appears, carving a Z adjacent to the first.

Perplexed, peons and soldiers surround the dismounted Zorros who study one another suspiciously, hands on the hilt of their swords.

Zorro
En garde!

The two dual like devils; each lunging, retreating, circling, lunging, retreating, interminably. Peons are taking a siesta; soldiers are resting against the side of the building; the two Zorros clinging to one another in exhaustion.

FRAY FELIPE appears. As Zorro turns to him, his hat falls releasing locks of long, glistening hair; perspiration clinging to and outlining a sultry, feminine body.

Zorro
Lolita?

Lolita drops her sword then sensually straightens her hair.

LOLITA
Ah, exhilerating!
(amused)
Not Lolita, but Z!

Peons stir; soldiers scratch their heads. Smiling seductively, she steps closely towards Zorro. She caresses his face then rips off his mask, revealing Zorro's true identity.

FRAY FELIPE
Diego?

LOLITA
Yes, it is Diego!

DIEGO
Why Lolita? Why would you do this to me?

LOLITA
Because I'm the true Zorro! Tell them!

Diego studies the questioning crowd.

DIEGO
(with bowed head)
Yes. It is true.

LOLITA
Ha ha ha! No one can defeat Z!

Another Zorro appears, gallops passed Lolita, and scoops her up onto his horse. They disappear into the sunset.

DIEGO
Z is for Zorro?

FADE TO BLACK

I don't remember this one from before. I voted for Johnny Depp...I think he would make an awesome Zorro!

I like the idea of a strong (but sexy) female Zorro so I voted for Angelina Jolie.
