Michel Gondry in talks for ‘The Green Hornet’
Maybe this movie isnt going to sit in development hell for all eternity. Instead they are talking with Michel Gondry to step in and replace Stephen Chow who was originally tapped to direct but stepped down due to “creative differences”.
Well seeing as how they are at least attempting to get someone who can really utilize Rogen as director makes me excited, because initially I had my doubts of him playing a superhero. News thanks to THR, and Andy.
This from THR:
The choice of Gondry, the helmer behind off-the-beaten-path films such as “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “The Science of Sleep” and “Be Kind Rewind,” signals that the creative direction the studio and the film’s producer, Neal Moritz, are trying to take the project is one not usually associated with the usual crime-fighter movie.
“Hornet” follows the adventures of Britt Reid, a bored playboy who inherits his father’s crusading newspaper, the Daily Sentinel. By night he is a masked hero, fighting crime with his sidekick Kato, who has incredible martial arts skills.
Rogen and his writer partner Evan Goldberg joined the project in July 20, 2007, as writers and co-exec producers.
We will see how it all plays out, I am not certain that this project has everything it needs to be a success right now but that could change if Gondry brings his A game.
