Be Kind, Kato! Michel Gondry directing ‘Green Hornet’

Feb. 24, 2009 | 9:12 p.m.

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."Gondrygal

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."

    Michel Gondry is a genius! Did anyone read the profile of him in Corduroy Magazine? He's a crazy genius but bizarre! they posted part of the article here

    This is a mistake. Baldwin's The Shadow bombed (and it was a good film.) The Phantom with Billy Zane bombed. The Rocketeer bombed. Over 30 years ago, Doc Savage bombed. The Spirit just bombed. People just do not support this kind of "superhero" film except for Batman.

Someone told me it was <a href="” target=”_blank”> since their group designs and fabricates themed 3-D props, scale replicas and other visual merchandising displays and stuff, but I don't see any pics of it on their . I can't wait for this movie!!!!!
