In an interview with MTV, Seth Rogen let the world know that due to the severe lack of fans, The Green Hornet will start at the beginning and cover the origins of the Hornet and his pal Kato.
Rogen will be writing the script with Evan Goldberg and producing as well as supposedly playing Britt Reid. He also went to far away lands to grab the begging-to-be international star Stephen Chow to direct the flick and star as Kato.
No one gives a shit. There was, like, three people [who care about ‘Hornet’]. It [had to be] somewhat of [an origin story then]. We didn’t intend it to be one, but we realized that no one knows anything about the Green Hornet, and it actually became more confusing than anything that we didn’t include somewhat of an origin story. We realized through people being very confused with our screenplay that we should probably include somewhat of an origin in it.
The project is in its earliest of stages, so we have a long way to go, but it is happening and moving, so that’s the plus!
