According to THR, Columbia Pictures is optioning the rights to The Green Hornet with the plan of adapting the story for the big screen
"Hornet" follows the adventures of Britt Reid, a bored playboy who inherits his father's crusading newspaper, the Daily Sentinel. By night he is a masked hero, fighting crime with his sidekick Kato, who has incredible martial-arts skills.
"Hornet" was born during the golden age of radio, making its debut on Jan. 31, 1936, on Detroit's WXYZ. He was the creation of the station's George W. Trendle and Fran Striker, who also created the Lone Ranger. The series ran until 1952 on the Mutual and NBC Blue radio networks, in comic books and in two films from Universal Pictures in the early 1940s.
Now the challenge will be, can they cast someone that can fill the shoes once worn by Bruce Lee?
