The Green Chow-net

I just read on Slashfilm that Stephen Chow has been confirmed to co-star and direct in the latest superhero installment of The Green Hornet with none other than Seth Rogen. Chow will play Kato, a role made famous by Bruce Lee.

Could anyone have predicted this pairing? EVER? I couldn’t. And Stephen Chow? I wasn’t too excited after watching CJ7 (I still get lots of angry hate comments on my personal blog about this…get over it, people) and as much as I loved Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle, there’s always that little voice inside my head that wonders why Chow must a) always put himself in the starring (sympathetic hero) role in his movies and b) why does he depend so much on CG?

I’m curious to know how the Chow-esque method of filmmaking will turn out with Seth Rogen’s self-deprecating pot humor (which I LOVE) but it is awesome to see an Asian filmmaker get some huge recognition in the action-comedy world.

Yeah, that’s right, people. We don’t just do martial arts and pretend to be geishas. We can be funny, too!

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .

About Moye

I am a Japanese-American girl who was born, raised and is most probably stuck in traffic right this second in Los Angeles. I'm currently one of the co-editors of 8Asians and like to distract myself with good food, reading long books, playing video games, catching up on celebrity news, choosing my new new haircut and then writing all about it on Hello Moye and sometimes here on Twitter if I can get it in under 140 words or less. You can reach me at moye[at]
