The Green Hornet Synopsis

Pursued by police as a wanted criminal, the masked vigilante Green Hornet is actually Britt Reid, owner and publisher of muckraking journal the Daily Sentinel. Reid's dual identity is known only to his secretary and the city district attorney. The Hornet spends his off hours thwarting criminals with his Black Beauty, a souped-up crime-fighting vehicle and guns that fire non-lethal knockout gas and steel-piercing stingers. So far as police are concerned, the Hornet is himself a criminal; this misunderstanding enables Reid to operate "outside the law" to battle criminals and racketeers with his faithful valet Kato, the only living person who knows the true identity of the Hornet.

A classic character of film, television, radio, and comic books returns to the big screen in Columbia Picturesí feature film The Green Hornet, starring Seth Rogen as the vigilante crime-fighter. The film will be directed by Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) from a screenplay written by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg (Superbad, Pineapple Express), based upon The Green Hornet radio series created by George W. Trendle, and produced by Neal H. Moritz (The Fast and the Furious).

But despite those solid numbers, those of you holding their breath waiting for a sequel should probably exhale right about now....
