UPDATED: The Green Hornet Lives and Adam Sandler could be joining him

There was a rumour knocking about the other day that The Green Hornet was being put to sleep by Sony.

However, a recent update from the film's writer and star, Seth Rogen, shows that rumor is not true.
Rogen contacted HitFix and told them that Sony still has every intention of making it.

"[The studio heads] have every intention on making it, and assuming we're able to hire a new director in the upcoming weeks, which seems like a distinct possibility, it should still hit the release date,"
Not only is he starring in the film and co-writing it, but he's also producing, which means he is in the know as to what will happen.

So it looks like Sony is still going ahead with The Green Hornet and they're trying to find a new director. And according to AICN, it looks like Stephen Chow also still remains attached as Kato.
UPDATE: The LA Times says that Adam Sandler will be taking on “a brief but key role in the movie as a certain surprise superhero.” I've no idea who that could be. Maybe The Shadow or Doc Savage maybe?
