Green Hornet Film Release
Can you believe this series actually started back in the 1930’s on the radio? And now some 80 years later we are here with surprisingly the very first feature film featuring Britt Reid (Green Hornet) and Kato. Kato? Yes I know you are thinking where have you heard that name before? Well in the mid 60’s Kato was played by the one and only Bruce Lee. Jay Chou has a lot to live up to.
This film has actually been on and off since the 1990’s with the first incarnation including George Clooney and Jason Scott Lee as the famous duo. Thing then changed a few more times (including Jet Li being cast as Kato) before here we are, January 2011. Seth Rogan stars as Britt Reid (the Green Hornet) and if I am honest I am really unsure how this will work!! I am a huge Rogan fan but I’m not sure how he will take the lead in this role… But I will give him a chance and this could be a great film to start 2011. Also starring Jay Chou, Cameron Diaz, Edward James Olmos, and Christoph Waltz they definitely have the names, but can this film live up to the hype?
What do you think? Can Seth play this role? I need more opinions!
In cinemas nationwide from today, go and see it! I missed the preview last night and am going tonight (oops!). For the official Sony Green Hornet trailer just click below!
