Chow not yet Kato?

03.18.2009

I was under the impression that even though Michael Gondry had taken over directing duties on THE GREEN HORNET, Stephen Chow was still going to be playing Kato. Maybe not. Cinemablend caught up with Seth Rogen at SXSW and when they asked him about it, he responded that:

"We have no 100% official Kato at this point."

Of course, Chow could still end up taking the role. It just hasn't been confirmed yet. Also, I'm gonna have to tie this up right now because I just noticed that we're running a clip called "Kate Beckinsale Getting Nailed Doggy-Style" over there on the right in our video section. I could come back and finish this article after I'm done watching it, but look, I could easily masturbate to Kate Beckinsale for the entire week, while Planet Earth was being invaded by Zerg overlords, so it's safer if I just draw a line under this now.
Extra Tidbit: Chow taught himself kung fu by watching the television.

Smiert Spioname nailed it

"because he'd rather do a more comedic superhero flick with another overweight actor"

Chow is a comedian, he took on this project to begin with because he thought he'd be able to make a stright-up comedy. When Sony decided to change the tone of the film he left to do his own superhero comedy. It's actually kind of a win-win for both parties. The studio doesn't have to battle Chow over the tone of the film and Chow gets to make a superhero comedy like he wanted to in the first place.

I'm sure Gondry's film will still have comedic elements but I'm also sure it'll be much completely different from Chow's superhero film.

Fuck Chow...

So far, his development has only delayed production, so if he wants to drag his feet regarding this whole thing because he'd rather do a more comedic superhero flick with another overweight actor, then fuck him, let's get someone else like Ken Leung, Donnie Yen, Yusuke Iseya, or even Hiroyuki Sanada for fucks sake...

This movie was already weird with Seth Rogen playing the Green Hornet. Now with Gondry directing I have no diea what it's going to be: a comedy? action movie? a drama? what?

And Chow might be just as confused

I called this a while ago on one of the old threads. Chow's working on his own superhero movie with Jack Black so it kind of makes sense that he would've put the Green Hornet behind him.

Now I love Chow, but as a comedian not a martial artist. He's decent, but he's admitted in several interviews that he's nowhere as good as many of his peers.

Tidbit sounds like the premise for one of his movies.
