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.

To say that "Jane Got A Gun" had issues is an understatement. Originally set to be directed by Lynne Ramsay, the filmmaker abruptly left the movie after clashing with producers literally moments before cameras were set to roll, thus throwing the Natalie Portman-starring western into chaos. Gavin O'Connor ("Warrior," "Pride And Glory") quickly stepped in to replace Ramsay and keep the movie going, while Joel Edgerton lent a hand in rewriting the script and swapped roles, going from playing the villain (which went to Ewan McGregor), to taking the role of the hero. And even after production was complete, the picture took a long time to reach screens, finally arriving in January, where it flopped. And when Jessica Kiang sat down with Edgerton last month at the Berlin Film Festival, where he was on hand to promote the upcoming "Midnight Special," the conversation turned toward "Jane Got A Gun, »

However, it looks like the Weinsteins are pressing ahead with the Natalie Portman-starring film, and they've finally released the U.S. trailer for the movie.
