Chow won’t direct ‘Hornet’ as planned

Hong Kong filmmaker Stephen Chow has dropped out of directing The Green Hornet due to creative differences, Variety.com said.

Even though Chow won't be directing, he will still play the character of Kato in the movie co-written by and starring Seth Rogen, the entertainment industry trade newspaper said.

Columbia Pictures and producer Neal Moritz are looking for a new director now and hope to start shooting the big-screen superhero flick this spring.

Chow previously directed and starred in Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer.
