In case you were wondering, Stephen Chow is out, and Jay Chou is in as Kato in the Green Hornet movie.
“It’s an overwhelming experience to take on a role made famous by Bruce Lee. I won’t try to be Bruce Lee’s Kato â€“ I will try to bring my own interpretation to the part. Of course, it’s a dream role, and I’m looking forward to the challenge,” said Chou in a prepared statement.
There’s also word that floated out of Wizard World Chicago this past weekend that Edward James Olmos is also on board the Green Hornet flick, although there’s no word who he will play in the Michel Gondry directed film.
The Green Hornet is still slated for a July 9, 2010 release.
