Amasia Entertainment Is Developing A New 'Green Hornet' Production

The Green Hornet could be hitting theaters again as Amasia Entertainment has won the motion picture rights to the classic pulp crime-fighting hero. Amasia Entertainment is the studio banner of former Marvel Studios president Michael Helfant and Bradley Gallo,

Hornet is the alter ego of Britt Reid, a newspaper publisher who dons a green mask and wields cool guns to fight crime. He is aided in this endeavor by partner Kato, with the two speeding around town in the futuristic car known as the Black Beauty. First heard in radio serials during the 1930s, the Green Hornet moved to the big screen during the 1940s and then to television during the 1960s which co-starred Bruce Lee in one of his first roles as Kato. In 2011, Sony brought the Green Hornet back to the movie screen with Michel Gondry directing and a cast of Seth Rogen, Cameron Diaz and Christoph Waltz. The movie didn't do very well at the box office and the studio decided against a sequel.

Numerous studios have taken control of the Hornet rights but the rights lapsed as of last year.

Helfant tried to develop a feature for Hornet when he was an executive at Dimernsion Films and sees Hornet more in the superhero and comic book mold

"This is one of the only stand-alone classic superhero franchises,” Helfant said in a statement. “We’re a bunch of fan geeks at Amasia and are thrilled about creating something fresh and truly worthy of this legacy property. A new world that is relevant and thrilling, while respecting and honoring the original vision of creator George W. Trendle."

Gallo said he hoped to bridge “the film worlds of America and Asia” with the Hornet movies.

I'm game for a new Green Hornet and Kato. The old shows could have been better but it was what we had at the time. And Seth Rogan is no Green Hornet, maybe he can play the villain that turned Green Hornet and Kato into giant Stamps on the old Batman show.

God in Heaven just please keep Seth Rogen away from it.
