From Drifting to Chauffering: Kato Cast for New "Green Hornet" Movie

They have the writer-star, the director, and the Black Beauty; now the upcoming Seth Rogen "Green Hornet" flick has cast Taiwanese pop star Jay Chou as the Hornet's sidekick, Kato, a role Bruce Lee made famous in the '60's TV series. One of Chou's past roles was driving a much smaller and faster car in the live-action movie adaptation of the drift-race manga INITIAL D.

I would suggest a very small budget. The Green Hornet was a "niche" show to begin with. Then to do it without Bruce Lee, a bonafide scene stealer, it is a gamble to say the least.
