Columbia Pictures has finalized rights to The Green Hornet. Neal Mortiz (Click, Gridiron Gang) will produce the feature adaptation under his Original Film banner.
The property has a long past, previously at Universal and Miramax. Most recently in 2004, Kevin Smith tried his hand at developing it for Miramax.
Moritz, a self-professed fan of the product, says he hopes to get the project out to writers within the next few weeks.
