The Green Hornet will undergo a film reboot courtesy of Amasia Pictures, a production company run by Bradley Gallo and former Marvel Studios Chief Operating Officer Michael Helfant, as announced in Variety and numerous Hollywood trade journals early this month. Few details of the planned film have been announced, but the reboot does not appear to have any connection to the 2011 Green Hornet film which starred Seth Rogen. (Thank goodness.)
“When I was a kid, The Green Hornet was one of my favorite television series. I loved everything about it – the Green Hornet, Kato, and of course, the Black Beauty. They were the coolest!" said Helfant in the announcement, running down the film rights' long history. "It was personally painful to leave them all behind when I left Dimension. So I tried to option the property again at Marvel before it went over to Sony, and then again in 2017 before the rights landed at Paramount.”
As if news of a new major motion-picture was not enough, just in time to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Dynamite publishing the iconic character, Green Hornet, Kato, the Black Beauty and a bounty of gadgets are back in a new series in June 2020. 
“The Green Hornet is one of the first heroes that built the foundation of the comics industry, and weve been proudly publishing his adventures for 10 years now. I couldnt be happier with this new book, which is put together by a group of true comic pros with years of collective experience and strong relationships with each other and Dynamite! This is a great way to celebrate the Hornets 10th anniversary at Dynamite!” said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher.
