Variety is reporting that Michel Gondry, director of the fun if not well-attended film "Be Kind, Rewind" and the Jim Carrey-starring "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," will take on the recently vacated role of director on "The Green Hornet."
The Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg-written tale of Britt Reid’s alter ego crime-fighter and his cool, kicking sidekick is still listed for a 2010 release. Stephen Chow dropped the directing duties, though he is still attached to take on the Kato role made popular by Bruce Lee alongside Rogen’s title character.
Times reporter Deborah Netburn once asked Gondry what he’d like to ‘swede,’ or do an extremely low budget remake of, in terms of Oscar films. His answers are to the right, and they don’t include "Green Hornet."
