A film reboot of The Green Hornet is in the works, and Gavin O’Connor is on board to direct.
According to Deadline, Paramount Pictures and Chernin Entertainment have secured the film rights and are moving forward with film that offers an edgier take on Britt Reid. O’Connor, whose directorial credits include The Accountant and Warrior, is working with writer Sean O’Keefe, who’s been tapped to pen the script.
The Green Hornet graced the silver screen back in 2011 by way of Columbia Pictures. Thanks to it being such a costly endeavor, the Michel Gondry-directed film, which starred Seth Rogen, never got a sequel.
