After nearly a year in Pre-Pro Hell, Seth Rogen’s green hornet is finally going before the lens next month.Â At one point Stephen Chow was set to direct and play Kato, but then for reasons unknown to the Intardwebz community, Chow stepped down from directing duties.Â The good news is, he is still in for playing the Green Hornet’s sidekick.
Pursued by police as a wanted criminal, the masked vigilante Green Hornet is actually Britt Reid, owner and publisher of muckraking journal the DailyÂ Sentinel. Reid’s dual identity is known only to his secretary and the city district attorney.
The film now has a July 9, 2010 release date.
