michel gondry directing green hornet

More news on the Green Hornet movie... the project just gets weirder and weirder. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Michel Gondry is negotiations to direct Columbia's big-screen treatment of the classic costumed crime-fighter: Michel Gondry steps in for 'Green Hornet.' Yeah. Weird!

Stephen Chow was the last guy who signed on to direct, but dropped out over creative differences. This would've been cool as hell, but I guess it wasn't meant to be. He's still expected to co-star as Kato, the asskicking sidekick/chauffeur. Cross your fingers.

But Gondry directing? At first I thought it was a joke. I think he's a hell of a filmmaker. Visionary, even. But he's certainly the last guy I would've dreamed of to direct Green Hornet. We're talking about the guy who made Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep and Be Kind Rewind. This project just took a turn for the strange... and I kind of like it.

But like I've said from the beginning, Kato better kick ass.
