Paramount Pictures has recently announced they are teaming up with Chernin Entertainment to produce a new live-action adaptation of The Green Hornet. Gavin O’ Conner will be working as the director and Sean O’ Keefe will be working as the script writer.
O’Conner had this comment to say about the project.
“I’ve been wanting to make this movie — and create this franchise — since I’ve wanted to make movies,” O’Connor said. “As a kid, when most of my friends were into Superman and Batman, there was only one superhero who held my interest — The Green Hornet. I always thought he was the baddest badass because he had no superpowers. The Green Hornet was a human superhero. And he didn’t wear a clown costume. And he was a criminal — in the eyes of the law — and in the eyes of the criminal world. So all this felt real to me. Imagine climbing to the top of the Himalayas, or Mount Everest, or K2 over and over again and no one ever knew? You can never tell anybody. That’s the life of Britt and Kato. What they do, they can never say. They don’t take credit for anything.”
Currently not much else is known about the project so stay tuned for updates.
