Marko Zaror is going to play a a role in Colombian superhero effort Zambo Dende, with director Riccardo Gabrielli on board.
Zaror is playing the title role so if we assume that Shahlavi is playing a villain part then that’s one fearsome meeting of martial artists right there. Also included in the cast are Michelle Charlene Lee, Tait Fletcher and Esteban Cueto.
Zambo Dende is based on real life events about a child named Azuk who would rise from oppression to become a fighting force for the oppressed slaves of Latin America, ultimately foreseeing his royal destiny preset by the assassination of his mother.
What is Zambo Dende? A Colombian comic book created by Nicholas Rodriguez, word began to circulate in December 2013 that Disney were interested in backing a feature film adaptation for the Latin American market, creating a local superhero for Spanish speaking audiences. Here’s a synopsis for the comics:
Latin America 1577; two different races, both deprived of their very own cultural legacy sharing the merciless scenario, down from Colombia to the south of Brazil, were confined as slaves to do hard jobs on their wait for death. But every excess has its limit and it came in the form of a child, a child of hope. Azuk the first zambo to be born upon this people. Born with the greatness of African kings inherited from his father and the nobility gained from the blood of the ancient root of her Indian mother whose tragic assassination marked him and turned him into a symbol, a beacon of hope and freedom.
