Michel Gondry Blows His Own Hornet

the-green-hornetMichel Gondry tells MTV his plans for The Green Hornet. It’s gonna star the new slimline Seth Rogen as Britt Reid and god of comedy Stephen Chow as Kato. Gondry makes it sounds like The Spirit without all the coherent parts.

“I changed the speed of the camera at different spots in the image at different times. So it seems like [Green Hornet and Kato] are in the same world but at different times, and then they’re back together. [… The camera] speeds up and slows down but [at] different times for different characters’ images. So one will go fast and the other will go slow — and then they’ll meet. It’s [as if] they’re in different dimensions, but when they touch each other, they come into the same dimension.”

Clear as boue! Not exactly a quote that screams “pull,” but what are you gonna do? Gondry adds that the villain’s distinguishing feature is “a gun with two cannons” and that the TV Hornet, Van Williams, will make an appearance. He’ll be happy for the work–according to IMDB, it’s the first time Williams has appeared onscreen since 1993’s Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story.
