Commenting on what Rogen might do with the material, Erik asked, "Does that mean we should expect a real comedic Apatow-style take on the classic crime-fighter?" Well, Crabtree mentions that the Sony executives liked Rogen's "comedic take," so that answers that. Starting in the 1990's, Chow became a huge box sensation in Asia thanks to a prolific string of well-made comedies notable for his mo lei tau (nonsense) style of humor. His last two films (Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle) have relied more on visual humor; Hustle was a veritable tour de force of martial arts gags. Chow is a trained martial artist, so he's capable of playing the part. Miramax botched the Soccer release, but Sony's specialty division Sony Pictures Classics did a classy job with Hustle. Chow's next is A Hope, set for release later this year, and a Hustle sequel may be on the way. Sony reportedly hopes for a 2009 release for The Green Hornet.
