Stephen Chow May Be Out of 'The Green Hornet'


Stephen Chow could be out from the cast of 'The Green Hornet' since there is a casting call for the role of Kato which was earlier attached to him.

After leaving the director seat of "The Green Hornet", Stephen Chow is likely to be cast out from the action film as well. The speculation emerged after a casting call for Kato, a role in the Columbia Pictures movie project that was previously linked to the "Kung Fu Hustle" star, has been announced via Spoiler TV.

In the casting call, it is mentioned that for the Kato role, the studio is looking for a man with Asian ethnicities. He has to be around his 20's to his early 40's, but doesn't have to have Martial Arts experience. The role itself is described to be "Brit Reid's manservant/chauffeur by day and Green Hornet's martial arts-skilled sidekick by night."

Stephen Chow was originally set to direct and act in "The Green Hornet". However, he walked away from the directing role, passing the job to director Michel Gondry. Although he dropped the part at the time, scriptwriter for the film Seth Rogen insisted that Chow would still portray Kato. So far, there are yet words on whether Chow is completely out from the superhero movie.

An adaptation of WXYZ's radio show created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker, "The Green Hornet" centers on Britt Reid, a newspaper publisher by day and masked vigilante "Green Hornet" by night, and his adventures in fighting crimes. Produced by Neal H. Moritz, it is penned by Rogen and his writing partner in "Knocked Up", "Superbad" and "Pineapple Express", Evan Goldberg. Shooting commences shortly since the movie is expected to be released in the U.S. July 9, 2010.
