By night, debonair newspaper publisher Britt Reid (Seth Rogen) fights crime as a masked superhero known as The Green Hornet. At his side is martial arts expert Kato (Stephen Chow).
Expect a June 2010 release for this Original film directed by Michael Gondry. 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.

As of this post, the Special Effects Makeup artists haven’t been named.
