The Green Hornet is dead (maybe)

I can't write this and claim to be devastated. Not because I hated The Green Hornet or anything (don't get me wrong...I respect the material), but because I just don't know that much about the series. I know that Bruce Lee was on the TV show which is pretty awesome. And I know it started as a radio show. But other than that, I've got nothing. I do know that Seth Rogen was recently attached to a modern day adaptation of the source material, but that might not be the case anymore. According to HitFix, word is that Stephen Chow is no longer attached to the film. Chow was set to direct the Rogen written screenplay, but sources at Sony are saying that's not the case anymore. See, they were a little nervous when Chow repeatedly switched commitment back and forth repeatedly. And now that it seems he's unattached altogether Sony really isn't feeling it anymore. Now there is no definitive word that the film is dead, but the talk at Sundance is that it definitely won't be filmed in 2009. Like I said before, its not that I'm exactly heartbroken over this. I was intrigued to check out the film, but not necessarily dying to see it. It'll be interesting to see what happens, but I get the sense that Sony is getting a little nervous with the economy and all and are possibly looking at those franchises that they know will make more money. Which is kind of sad, because we miss out on properties that could make an awesome movie such as Green Hornet. The Green Hornet is dead (maybe)
