    Green Hornet was once a popular TV show back in the year 1966. Started as a TV series by ABC channel in the US, the series that only ran for a season of 26 episodes has been picked for a silver screen production by Michel Gondry. Back then, Van William was Green Hornet while his partner in action, Kato was played by the legendary Bruce Lee.

    Previously Stephen Chow was attached to direct and to play the role of Kato as the film has been listed by Columbia Pictures (Sony). However, Chow bowed out, leaving Michel Gondry to step in as the director. Empire Online published something juicy today (source) - with a possible big surprise to most.
