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 Pictures’ 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).

The Green Hornet Will Not Be Getting A Sequel The Green Hornet Will Not Be Getting A Sequel
As far as modern movies go, Michel Gondry's The Green Hornet actually performed fairly well. Released in January, a notoriously dead month, the movie managed to open at number one its opening weekend with a $30 million pull and internationally it came close to doubling its $120 million budget. But despite those solid numbers, those of you holding their breath waiting for a sequel should probably exhale right about now.

The Green Hornet Will Not Be Getting A Sequel

Updated: Green Hornet Brings Vigilante Justice Home Updated: Green Hornet Brings Vigilante Justice Home
Seth Rogen as Reid seems an unlikely guy to commence violent action, but that’s part of the quirkiness of Michel Gondry’s first superhero flick. It’s pretty clear since Nolan’s The Dark Knight, superhero movies can’t just be mindless pieces of entertainment. They need to have some substance and ideas. Evan Goldberg has several moments of comedic gold, and Gondry tries some crazy camera tactics, but at the end of the day, The Green Hornet never pans out as a truly great film.
