Michel Gondry To Direct The Green Hornet

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind filmmaker Michel Gondry has been tapped to direct the silver screen adaptation of The Green Hornet set for a June 2010 release.

Starring Seth Rogen and Stephen Chow, it will be one of the most commercial films of Gondry's career.

Rogen wrote the script with his longtime co-writer, Evan Goldberg, and Gondry won directing duties after pitching a vision that awed film execs. Rogen and Goldberg will executively produce.

It has been an arduous road to the silver screen for the super hero, who first appeared in a serialized radio show in the 1930s. Since then it has been adapted for television, but hit roadblocks on its way to the cinema.

Should prove to be very interesting! We wonder if Gondry will refrain from CG effects as he has in his previous works!

    Re: Shakermaker – I wouldn't describe his films as sleep inducing (well ok Human Nature had it's tedious moments) - 'Science of Sleep' for example ROCKS!

    WTF is "executively produce." You are a Moron. It is called "Executive Producer," which is a noun not a fucking adverb. You should learn how to conjugate and form proper sentences using correct grammar.

    oh god seth rogan as a lead character? doesnt he realise he is so much better as a supporting acor seriously movies with him as the lead are just no where near as funny as with him as a supporting actor such as superbad and 40 yr old virgin… they were funny he was rly funny because he wasnt on camera ALL THE TIME! and also his acing just seems to be much better however take his other movies such as knocked up and zack and miri make a porno… NOPE!!!!!! they were crapola well not rly thats a bit much but they were no where as good as his supporting roles in other movies because why? HE WAS ON CAMERA ALLL THE TIME! (pretty much)
