Now here is some fantastic news! Stephen Chow the wrier, director and star of awesome funny action packed Chinese films Shaolin Soccer and Kung fu Hustle is going to be starring and directing Seth Rogans 'Green Hornet'. Rogan has explained afew month back that The Green Hornet is :

"Stephen was always my and Evan's first choice for director and to play Kato. We just hope that he never finds out we're not the Wachowski Brothers."

So I guess their dream has come true. When Stephen Chow was asked about starring in and directing the film he had this to say:

"I'm excited to be taking on 'The Green Hornet' -- obviously, I've been a huge fan of the show since I was a kid. The idea of stepping into Bruce Lee's shoes as Kato is both humbling and thrilling, and to get the chance to direct the project as my American movie debut is simply a dream come true. I'm grateful to my friends at Sony, who have shown so much faith in me for so many years. I'm looking forward to working with Seth, Evan, Neal, and the team at Sony, and I'm eager to get started."

Thats right! This will be his American movie debut. Awesome! Chow is the perfect man for the job, I honestly think that there is no other better director for the task. this movie is going to be a huge hit!
