Stephen Chow For Kato In Hornet

A few days ago they broke the news about “Knocked Up” star Seth Rogen writing and starring in a new film version of “The Green Hornet” for Sony Pictures.

Now, The Los Angeles Times reports that Rogen wants “Kung Fu Hustle” director and actor Stephen Chow to play Kato in his comedic take on the comic book.

The late Bruce Lee famously played sidekick Kato, a kung fu expert with a killer car, in the 1966 TV series. Rogen would play Brit Reid, millionaire publisher-turned-masked crime fighter.
