Universal Pictures and Amasia Entertainment are collaborating to produce a remake of The Green Hornet.
Predating Superman, The Green Hornet was one of early radio’s most popular shows and a 1966 TV series introduced Bruce Lee to American audiences.
The plot revolved around Britt Reid, the owner and publisher of The Daily Sentinel who teams up with his trusty aide Kato (Lee) to fight criminals, becoming the Green Hornet.
Universal Pictures president Peter Cramer said:
“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.”
Casting for The Green Hornet hasn’t started but the producers will be looking for two outstanding leads to play the roles of Reid and Kato.
