Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Be Kind Rewind, The Science of Sleep, Tokyo!) is in negotiations to direct “The Green Hornet,” Columbia Pictures big screen adaptation of the classic crime-fighting hero being played by Seth Rogen.
“Hornet” follows the adventures of Britt Reid, a bored playboy who inherits his father’s crusading newspaper, the Daily Sentinel. By night he is a masked hero, fighting crime with his sidekick Kato, who has incredible martial arts skills.
The Hollywood Reporter says the studio is intent on making the feature one of its 2010 tentpoles.
