Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones promises fans will be thrilled with the long awaited sequel to The Mask of Zorro.

Jones and co-star Antonio Banderas are currently filming The Legend of Zorro, which is set 10 years on from the last movie.

Fans of the original film have had to wait eight years for a sequel, but Zeta-Jones and Banderas insist they have been holding out for the right script.

Zeta-Jones explains, "Antonio and I always wanted to do another one. While we were promoting the first film, we agreed we had to do a second. It was always on the cards but it had to be right.

"There have been a few incarnations in the script. And though it took seven years, when I read this one, I didn't think twice. It was a slam-dunk."
