Paramount Pictures and Chernin Entertainment have hired Gavin O’Connor to direct a reboot of “The Green Hornet.” O’Connor will also be partnering with Sean O’Keefe, who will be writing the script. In an interview O’Connor shared his thoughts on the upcoming project
“I’ve been wanting to make this movie and create this franchise since I’ve wanted to make movies. As a kid, when most of my friends were into Superman and Batman, there was only one superhero who held my interest — ‘The Green Hornet.’ I always thought he was the baddest badass because he had no superpowers. The Green Hornet was a human superhero. And he didn’t wear a clown costume. And he was a criminal— in the eyes of the law— and in the eyes of the criminal world. So all this felt real to me,”
A release date for the film has yet to be announced.
