Kato: You like your father now? Britt Reid: Yes! You see, he wasn't a dick after all. Well, he was a dick, just not really how we thought he was.
  • George Clooney, Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Wahlberg and Vince Vaughn were previously considered to play the lead role.
  • James Wan was considered to direct before Michel Gondry came aboard.
  • After the rights to The Green Hornet property were purchased by Miramax in 2001, Kevin Smith was attached to write and direct the film in 2004, with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead. The story had Britt Reid aka Green Hornet and Kato as old men in retirement, with Britt Reid Jr. aka Green Hornet II (Gyllenhaal) and Kato's daughter donning their fathers' masks to combat a new evil. Smith pulled out of directing due to an insecurity of directing with such a large budget. He stayed on as writer and wrote two drafts, but with no further progress with the script, the rights were let go and purchased by Columbia Pictures. Then, Seth Rogen, who had starred in Smith's Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008), became attached to star and write a wholly different screenplay. Smith's screenplay was adapted into a comic book miniseries called "Green Hornet: Sins of the Father," published by Dynamite before the movie's release.
  • The exterior of the Daily Sentinel building is the Creative Artists Agency building in Century City.
  • When Britt and Kato are watching themselves on the news running away from vandalizing the statue, Kato does not see himself on screen. He reasons he is "too fast for the camera". When Bruce Lee played Kato in The Green Hornet (1966) TV series they filmed his fight scenes at a faster rate because he was "too fast for the camera".
