MTV chatted with The Green Hornet writer and director Kevin Smith who talked more about the casting…
Actually, Smith won’t say who he really has in mind, but he did reveal that discussions have already gotten under way. “We had a really tremendous meeting,” Smith said. “Hopefully he says yes.”
Rumors have linked both George Clooney â€” who was attached to the project in 1997 before he was cast in “The Peacemaker” â€” and Jet Li, but Smith wouldn’t name names when pressed. He would only say that “acting skill” is at the top of his wish list. “I want a performer more than anything else â€” a guy who can act,” Smith said.
