Stephen Chow, director of the film "Kung Fu Hustle" has been tapped to film and costar in "The Green Hornet"
Already signed up to play the Green Hornet himself, is none other than Seth Rogan. Chow will play the Hornet's inimitable chauffeur Kato.
The film is being produced by Columbia Pictures. The film is currently scheduled to bow in theaters on June 25, 2010.
Beginning as a 1930's radio show, the Green Hornet has seen many different incarnations including a 1940's movie serial, a 1960's television series (Bruce Lee as Kato), and also in many different comic books.
The screenplay was written by Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg. Somehow, I don't think this film will have the same serious undertones as "The Dark Knight".
If this makes you feel nostalgic, here is a little clip I found of the opening segment of "The Green Hornet" TV series.
