Stephen Chow Won’t Direct ‘The Green Hornet,’ Will Still Play Kato

Stephen ChowFROM SPLASH PAGE: Seth Rogen’s remake of “The Green Hornet” has just hit a snag, like all of the Hornet adaptations before it. According to Variety, it lost its director, Stephen Chow.

Chow will still play the role of Kato, but he has dropped out of directing due to creative differences. It’s not clear if the differences were with its writers, Rogen and Evan Goldberg, or with the studio and producer Neal Moritz.

  1. Why?
    December 20, 2008

    Sounded like a dog when Rogen announced his involvement and intent to make a comedy. At least Chow knows to get out while he can. Perhaps Chow would not disrespect the memory of Bruce Lee with the obvious comedic treatment that was planned. Now all Moritz has to do is get some serious writers in on this and do it the right way like the last two Bond and Batman films. The Hornet is not a comedy its a gritty crime story, the sooner they get that through their heads the better off they will be!
