THE GREEN HORNET

AFTER ALMOST 20 YEARS OF DEVELOPMENT, THE GREEN HORNET FINALLY MADE IT TO THE BIG SCREEN. BUT WHAT TOOK IT SO LONG?

The Green Hornet began as a radio show in the 1930s. It’s the story of Britt Reid, a newspaper owner by day and crime-fighting vigilante by night. With the help of his trusty sidekick Kato (and his invincible car, Black Beauty) the Green Hornet poses as a villain to get close to the bad guys before defeating them and leaving them for the police. After the success of the radio programme, The Green Hornet was made into a TV series in the sixties, which starred legendary martial artist Bruce Lee as Kato. After two years, the show finished, but the Green Hornet continued to appear in a popular comic book. In 1992, there were plans for a movie version of The Green Hornet. However, a series of problems stopped it going into production: the script was rewritten several times, there were failed negotiations with car companies for product placementdeals, and numerous scheduling conflicts with the cast. George Clooney, Greg Kinnear, Mark Wahlberg and Jake Gyllenhaal were all considered for the lead role, but eventually pulled out due to the ongoing issues. The role of Kato was offered to Jason Scott Lee, Jet Li and Stephen Chow.
