Veteran Write David Koepp To Script 'Green Hornet And Kato' Movie

Recommended Posts

Veteran writer David Koepp will be penning the script for The Green Hornet and Kato, the Universal Pictures and Amasia Entertainment’s feature.



Hornet is the alter ego of Britt Reid, an American newspaper publisher who dons a green mask and wields guns to fight crime. He is aided in this endeavor by his Asian valet-turned-partner Kato, with the two speeding around town in a futuristic car known as the Black Beauty.

The hero was part of the pulpy adventurers introduced through radio such as The Shadow and Doc Savage, all of whom were precursors to the comic book superheroes Superman and Batman, who made their debuts in the late 1930s.Hornet crossed over into serials in the 1940s, a TV series in the 1960s, and a Seth Rogen vehicle in 2011.


The project is being produced by Amasia co-founders Michael Helfant and Bradley Gallo.

Koepp is credited for writing Jurassic Park and Spider-Man.

David Koepp has written some good stuff like Toy Soldiers, Carlito's Way, and Stir of Echoes.  He's also written some bad stuff like the Johnny Depp remake of Secret Window, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and the Tom Cruise Mummy movie.  I think a lot depends on who's going to be directing this second-try-in-ten-years at Green Hornet movie.

Oh rebooting Green Hornet again...hmmm, I remember the ill fate of the last one, I don't think people will be rushing to see this one, there is no buzz or interest it seems in Green Hornet at this point, maybe just make something animated and move along...
