The Green Hornet finally gets his Kato in Stephen Chow. Chow, an A-lister in the Hong Kong entertainment scene who is well-regarded for his comedic style, will star as the sidekick Kato in The Green Hornet, opposite Seth Rogen as Brit Reid and his crime-fighting alter ego. Chow will also direct the film.
This will be Chow's American directorial debut. The film already has a June 25, 2010 release date attached and will be released by Columbia Pictures. Rogen, who is reportedly losing weight to portray Reid, and the studio both wanted Chow for the film because of his comedic action style.
