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!
