It’s been a quiet few months on the “Green Hornet” front lately, but that shouldn’t be taken as a sign that things are slowing down on the Seth Rogen-starring film. In fact, director Michel Gondry says fans will see the first trailer at some point in the near future.
“There’s a trailer that’s been made,” the filmmaker told MTV News during this weekend’s South by Southwest Festival. “[It should be out] in the spring or summer, actually.”
Based on Gondry’s description of the trailer, fans will learn a good amount about Rogen and Jay Chou’s characters of Britt Reid and Kato, the two heroes at the center of the action. But it’s not all about character development, as Gondry promised plenty of violence in the upcoming trailer.
“You see Kato and Seth deciding why they want to be crime fighters,” he said. “Then you see images of their completion. It’s pretty violent, but with a good spirit.”
Despite the lack of recent information, Gondry said that all was well on “The Green Hornet.” According to the filmmaker, the relationship between himself, Rogen, the studio and various producers couldn’t be healthier.
“It’s a great collaboration,” he said. “I really enjoy working with the producers. All of those guys happen to think very fast and make very random decisions, but they turned out to be successful.”
