English-language standards may be slipping everywhere in Hong Kong but comedian Stephen Chow Sing-chi has been in overdrive to master the language. Not too long ago, he even dated, for a time, an expatriate former Post colleague to improve his interpersonal communication skills in a foreign language. Now he is brushing up by arguing constantly with Hollywood comedian Seth Rogen over the script and direction of the Green Hornet, a remake of the 1960s TV hit, in which he will play Kato, which was originally played by the late Bruce Lee. As a result, production of the film has been repeatedly delayed. '[Chow has] given us a lot of ideas,' Rogen said. 'His English is ... well, we keep saying when we all come out of this, we will be great communicators. He's made great strides, I will say. It presents its own challenges at times. We are really just starting the process; very little has actually been done. We're actually in the very preliminary stages right now.'
