‘Green Hornet' Reboot Update: Movie To Be More Bad-Ass With 'The Accountant' Director Gavin O'Connor
Last time the Green Hornet graced the silver screen was in 2011 when Seth Rogen donned the mask in an action comedy flick. Needless to say, it was not as some would say a blockbuster hit. So when news came out of a new Green Hornet reboot, some were a bit skeptical and quite frankly really surprised. But having "The Accountant" Director, Gavin O'Connor on board gave the project some ray of hope.
According to O'Connor, creating this movie is a big passion project of his. In his own words, the director reflected about finally having the project come to fruition:
"I've been wanting to make this movie -- and create this franchise -- since I've wanted to make movies. As a kid, when most of my friends were into Superman and Batman, there was only one superhero who held my interest -- The Green Hornet. I always thought he was the baddest badass because he had no superpowers. The Green Hornet was a human superhero. And he didn't wear a clown costume. And he was a criminal -- in the eyes of the law -- and in the eyes of the criminal world. So all this felt real to me."
O'Connor is known for edgier films like "The Accountant" and "Warrior." It could be an interesting marriage to combine his themes with the "Green Hornet" lore which is really known for being on the campy side.
According to Deadline, Gavin plans to do a whole redoing of the whole "Green Hornet" myth by modernizing it and focusing on the "Green Hornet's" human side. Or in his very own words:
"When we meet Britt Reid he's lost faith in the system. Lost faith in service. In institutions. If that's the way the world works, that's what the world's going to get. He's a man at war with himself."
As of the writing, "Green Hornet" does not have a release date and is still in pre-production.
