A new Green Hornet movie is on its’ way.
Variety reports that Universal Pictures is teaming up with Amasia Entertainment for a new take on The Green Hornet and Kato, based on the classic characters.
Amasia’s co-founders Michael Helfant and Bradley Gallo will produce the upcoming film.
The Green Hornet, who was last on the big screen with Seth Rogen in the title role in 2011, made his debut on a radio show during the 1930s and focuses on Britt Reid, the owner/publisher of The Daily Sentinel who moonlights as a vigilante.
There was a television series in the 1960s which stared Van Williams and Bruce Lee, as his sidekick/chauffeur Kato.
“The Green Hornet is one of the most iconic and beloved superhero tales ever created, and it has entertained generations of fans in every form of storytelling. We are thrilled to be partnering with Michael, Bradley, and the entire Amasia team to launch an exciting new cinematic world for Britt Reid, Kato, and the Black Beauty, and we can’t wait to share it with global audiences soon,” Peter Cramer, president of Universal Pictures, shared in a statement.
