Michel Gondry to Direct "The Green Hornet"

Posted: February 24th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Michel Gondry to Direct "The Green Hornet"Submit Comment
Michel Gondry is in negotiations to direct "The Green Hornet," Columbia Pictures' big-screen treatment of the classic crime-fighting hero being portrayed by Seth Rogen.

Stephen Chow had been tapped to direct but dropped out over creative differences. He is still expected to co-star as Kato, the Hornet's trusty sidekick and chauffeur.

Since Chow's departure, the project has been the subject of speculation that it was sliding into development hell, but the studio is intent on making the feature one of its 2010 tentpoles.

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 is 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.

Wow, I can't wait to see what kind of quirky indie direction Gondry takes The Green Hornet in! Not really. This is awful news.

What's quirky or indie about a big budget studio film (written by the Superbad/Pineapple Express guys) signing an innovative director?

i wouldve liked to see stephen chow direct but whatev. I didnt like Be Kind Rewind it was kinda stupid and it made Passaic, NJ look a lot sh*ttier than it actually is. Im from there. It does totally suck sh*t though there lol moved out to AZ and not going back. I'll see green hornet no matter what though.

A risky move in Gondry's part but the payoff will be grand if he's successful.
