“The Green Hornet and Kato” movie at Universal and Amasia Entertainment’s has landed a giant franchise author, David Koepp, identified for “Jurassic Park,” the unique “Mission: Impossible” movie and the primary “Spider-Man” movie, amongst many extra.
“The Green Hornet and Kato” was optioned and introduced again in April after Amasia co-founders Michael Helfant and Bradley Gallo acquired the film franchise rights from the household of the unique creator George W. Trendle in a bidding warfare in January.
Helfant, the previous President of Marvel Studios, and Gallo will produce the movie for Amasia.
David Koepp is hooked up as a author on the subsequent Indiana Jones film and Universal’s “Bride of Frankenstein,” and he most just lately wrote and directed the Kevin Bacon thriller “You Should Have Left.”
“The Green Hornet” was certainly one of early radio’s hottest journey exhibits — even predating “Superman” — earlier than it turned a set of film serials within the 1940s as launched by Universal, then the 1966 TV collection that launched Bruce Lee to the U.S., and eventually the Seth Rogen reboot from 2011.
The traditional story focuses on Britt Reid proprietor/writer of The Daily Sentinel. Armed with data from his sources, cool weapons, a supercar generally known as The Black Beauty, and teamed together with his trusty aide Kato, Reid turned The Green Hornet, a vigilante crime fighter wished by the police and feared by the prison world.
Amasia Entertainment’s subsequent launch is John Patrick Shanley’s “Wild Mountain Thyme,” starring Emily Blunt, Jamie Dornan, Christopher Walken and Jon Hamm, which hits theaters on Friday.
Universal’s Senior Vice President of Production Sara Scott and Director of Development Lexi Barta will oversee the challenge on behalf of the studio.
Koepp is represented by Myman Greenspan Fox Rosenberg Mobasser Younger & Light LLP.
