Stephen Chow Wanted for "Hornet"
Hong Kong actor/filmmaker Stephen Chow is said by the Los Angeles Times to be Seth Rogen's first choice in playing the Green Hornet's sidekick, Kato.


Buzz around "The Green Hornet" is likely to get louder by now as Los Angeles Times has brought in a new scoop about the project following the recent inclusion of "Knocked Up" star Seth Rogen.

According to the paper, Rogen is apparently keen to have Hong Kong actor-director Stephen Chow to play Kato, the titular character's sidekick formerly played by the deceased martial arts superstar Bruce Lee. Chow, considered the finest Hong Kong screen comedian since Michael Hui, is probably most well-known to international audience for his recent works of "Shaolin Soccer" and "Kung Fu Hustle."

An adaptation of WXYZ's radio show created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker, "Hornet" centers on a debonair newspaper publisher named Britt Reid who decides to fight crime behind his mask as the Green Hornet. Rogen has been confirmed to both co-executive produce and co-write the flick with Neal H. Moritz producing for Columbia Pictures.
