The Los Angeles Times, which broke the news about Seth Rogen writing and starring in The Green Hornet, is now saying the Knocked Up star wants Kung Fu Hustle director and actor Stephen Chow to play Kato in his comedic take on the comic book.
The “Green Hornet” TV show was notable for the presence of the late Bruce Lee as sidekick Kato, a kung fu expert with a killer car.
Rogen would play Brit Reid, millionaire publisher-turned-masked crime fighter. The film will be produced by Neal H. Moritz at Columbia Pictures.
