The Accountant's Gavin O'Connor To Direct A Green Hornet Reboot

Back in 2011, actor Seth Rogen and his creative partner Evan Goldberg could do no wrong. The pair had penned such great films as Superbad and Pineapple Express, and while two comedy writers taking on the iconic green-masked crime-fighter seemed like an odd fit, most were open to the idea. After all, even if Rogen and Goldberg had mostly made comedies, their films had a solid emotional core backbone to them that put them a cut above your standard comedies of the time. If they’d made sure to have that same backbone with the Green Hornet, and change the skin a bit, it could turn out pretty good, right?

Well, sadly, it didn’t turn out well. There are certain films crimes never should commit. One of them is being boring. While I wouldn’t call Green Hornet an inept film, I’d call it beyond »

Green Hornet Reboot Gets The Accountant Director Gavin O'Connor

15 November 2016 11:37 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There are two things Hollywood is doing a whole lot of right now; reboots and comic book movies. The Accountant director Gavin O'Connor has just signed on for his next project, which is going to be both. News broke today that he will be helming a reboot of The Green Hornet for Paramount, which will be nothing like the 2011 Seth Rogen version.

Deadline is reporting that Gavin O'Connor is set to direct the movie after the rights were acquired by Paramount and Chernin Entertainment. As it turns out, this is not just a filmmaker jumping on the comic book movie bandwagon, because according to the director himself, this has been a lifelong dream and a serious passion project. Here is some of what he had to say while speaking to Deadline about his upcoming reboot of The Green Hornet.

The Leaves: Josh Radnor to direct new sci-fi drama

How I Met Your Mother's Josh Radnor is set to direct the upcoming sci-fi drama, The Leaves...

Josh Radnor, of How I Met Your Mother and Mercy Street fame, will be exploring uncharted (for him) territory as director of Lionsgate/Summit’s sci-fi drama The Leaves, the latest supernatural comic to come alive on the big screen.

This isn’t Radnor’s first time behind the camera (though it is his first paranormal one). His first venture behind the scenes was writing and directing the buzzed-about dramedy Happythankyoumoreplease, followed by Liberal Arts, which he also starred in. Both of his films received serious accolades even though neither was a box office smash.

In an uncharacteristic move, he won’t be making an onscreen appearance this time around. The Leaves is also a departure from his usual comedic material as he enters the world of science fiction. »

What will ‘How I Met Your Mother’ alum Josh Radnor bring to the sci-fi genre?

21 June 2016 3:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

How I Met Your Mother alum Josh Radnor is getting into sci-fi. He will direct a sci-fi drama called The Leaves, based on a Virgin Comics (now Liquid Comics) one-shot comic of the same name. Summit Entertainment acquired the rights to the graphic novel way back in 2008.  Here is the description of The Leaves on Amazon: Inspired by the real-life Naadi fortune-tellers of India and one man’s legendary experience, Doctor Max Mellick has the universe at his fingertips — a world-renown heart surgeon with a striking girlfriend and extravagant New York lifestyle. When he attends a friend's funeral in India, something deep within him is forever changed. Identified as evil by an Indian fortune-teller, Max is forced to flee the country — to save his own life, but more importantly, to preserve his destiny. Interestingly, there’s a major aspect of The Leaves’ story (which Variety mentions) that’s not in that summary. »
