Stephen Chow has apparently dropped out of directing Seth Rogen's The Green Hornet to instead write and direct his own superhero project. According to, this untitled film will star Jack Black and Anne Hathaway, and it will mark Chow's Hollywood debut as an actor.

Chow is currently in the process of writing the screenplay, which will be an action comedy. The legendary action star stated, "It will be about a superhero, action-packed, special effects-rich, and of course funny."

The film will most likely go into production sometime later this year. At this time, Chow is also still slated to star alongside Rogen in The Green Hornet as Kato.
