Revered Hong Kong funnyman/filmmaker Stephen Chow has quit as the director of comic book movie adaptation THE GREEN HORNET.
Chow's role as the Hornet's sidekick Kato is now in doubt.
The Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle star reveals he wants to concentrate his efforts on making a new comedy about a superhero, starring Jack Black.
Chow says, "If I direct The Green Hornet, the superhero comedy will have to be delayed for two years.“
Seth Rogen has written the screenplay for The Green Hornet and will star in the film.
