question of the day: What is a Michel Gondry ‘Green Hornet’ going to look like?

French director Michel Gondry, whose films include such mindbenders as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep, is taking over directing chores on the upcoming Green Hornet movie.

Not featured in Gondry’s filmography is anything close to a comic book action movie… unless you count some brief sendups of the genre in Be Kind Rewind. And maybe that’s okay: The Green Hornet’s script is by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen — with Rogen starring — so indications are that this will be more funny than serious.

Still: while the prospect of a mindbending comic book movie thrills me, I doubt that that’s what in the offing here. I’m afraid it’s going to end up somewhere in the mushy middle, unsatisfying as either a brain frak or a comic book.

What do you think? What is a Michel Gondry ‘Green Hornet’ going to look like?
