THE GREEN HORNET

Kato has been found! MTV Splash Page reports actor Jay Chou will play driver and manservant to Seth Rogan's Green Hornet. "I won't try to be Bruce Lee's Kato -- I will try to bring my own interpretation to the part. Of course, it's a dream role, and I'm looking forward to the challenge," says the actor. Also, various sources have linked to an article at Hollywood Snitch which claims actor Edward James Olmos of "Battlestar Galactica" has joined the cast.

Directed by Michel Gondry, release date: July 9th, 2010

AVENGERS

During the Television Critics Association event last week, Tim Roth revealed he is signed to play The Abomination in three films, according to Ain't It Cool News. Whether or not this means he will appear in "the Avengers" is up for some debate, but a sequel to "The Incredible Hulk" is only in the earliest stages of development. Meanwhile, "Incredible Hulk" director Louis Leterrier tells the LA Times Hero Complex he has not been involved in the sequel so far, but would love to take on the Avengers and outlines an ambitious idea to tell one story over the course of four summer Marvel movies.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., release date May 4th, 2012

JONAH HEX

IESB talked with the stars, the director, and producer of the film during Comic-Con. "I loved that it wasn't an extremely successful comic book. There were three different manifestations of the comic book, but like the character himself, it refuses to go away. There's a great survivalist element to this guy and the comic book itself," says actor James Brolin when asked about his entry point into the character.
