Green Hornet Has the Big-screen Buzzzzz

Columbia Pictures, which has Spider-Man 3 swinging into theaters on May 4, has its eye on a new "bug": the Green Hornet, which was created by the Lone Ranger's Fran Striker and George Trendle and finds millionaire Brit Reid moonlighting as a masked crime fighter.The Green Hornet originated as a '30s radio serial and was once a TV series starring Van Williams and Bruce Lee (as sidekick Kato). The property, says Variety, had previously been eyed by Universal and Miramax, with Kevin Smith developing it for 'Max a few years ago, but Sony-based Neal H. Moritz (an executive producer on Prison Break) has emerged as the guy to actually shepherd the feature franchise.

Premise: Adventures of the masked crimefighter and his assistant Kato that tried to duplicate the success of ABC's other dynamic superhero, `Batman,' which had premiered earlier in the year. This series, an adaptation of a radio show, was played more seriously, though, and while it had its own style and received some praise, it languished in a Friday time slot and was canceled after one season. It became a cult favorite later, thanks largely to future martial-arts legend Bruce Lee, who played Kato.
