ZAMBO DENDE Rises! Watch Marko Zaror As The Colombian Comic Book Hero In Live Action Adaptation!
As regular patrons of Fantastic Fest have known for years, Chilean martial arts star Marko Zaror is a little bit larger than life. I mean that both literally in that he's not at all a small man, and also figuratively in that he makes gravity defying flips and spins that should be impossible look positively simple. And now he gets a role as much larger than life as he is.

We first reported quite a while back that Zaror had been cast to play the title role in a live action adaptation of Colombian comic book Zambo Dende, playing a hero that frees slaves from their colonial oppressors. the producers are aiming large on this with plans not only for more books but also an animated series, a live action feature film, and very likely a live action television series. And to get it all started they shot a proof of concept short film which they have just released the first trailer for now. And it's gooooood.

As a bittersweet note here for martial arts fans, yes that is also the recently deceased Darren Shahlavi in there in one of his final roles before an undiagnosed heart issue ended his life.
