Hornet pushed back

08.31.2009

    Rogen and Black Beauty at Comic Con

Normally I'd be the first to snicker and roll eyes at Sony's recent announcement that THE GREEN HORNET won't be released on July 25th as intended. But I'm partial to Seth Rogen, so I'll him when he says in no way it's the end (again...).

Reacting to wildfire rumors following the announcement, star and scribe Seth Rogen had a chat with the folks of HitFix claiming the move to December 17th 2010 is a GOOD thing. Meaning they can take their time and do a good film. Does that really happen in Hollywood? wow...

"We're both relieved and psyched about the change. It gives more time for post, which would have been immensely rushed if we were to come out in the summer. It also affords us more time to promote the film," Rogen claimed. "We got the same date that movies like 'I Am Legend' and 'Avatar' are getting, so we're thrilled to be there." Yup, I also recall THE SPIRIT coming out around that time. And AVATAR isn't a sure bet yet, at least according to Adolph.

His explanation makes sense though, HORNET isn't guaranteed maga-hit material; Contrary to other properties (*cough* TF2 *cough*), you HAVE to make a good film for profits to come. Plus counter-programming for that weekend couldn't be sweeter: SMURFS 3D and YOGI BEAR will share the marquee with Seth. Yogi & Rogen... Now that's a funny concept! "Hey Boo Boo! Wanna get high you silly bear? Oh-oh, here comes the f*ckin ranger!"

Extra Tidbit: A more appropriate counter-programming for HORNET would be a Quick Draw McGraw movie. "Kaboooong"!

Here's an idea.......

......push it back untill the year 2110. Then I won't have to worry about it! Please don't make this with the current ' stars '.

.......

The Green Hornet was lame and I stil haven't fell in love with Seth Rogan. I don't get the comedic appeal he's more annoying than funny and he should be doing the role he was born for...Yogi Bear.

Hey! It's become the new Justice League film!

I laughed at the Spirit ref, but it IS spelled ADOLF, not Adolph. Yes, I'm a Nazi...

YAY! I wouldn't mind a Green Hornet film if neither Nicholas Cage, Cameron Diaz or Seth Rogen were apart of. Rogen only appeals to potheads and alcoholics who feel as if they can relate to every character he plays.

Stay fat & stay fun but more importantly STAY AWAY from this project. DO NOT F**K up the Green Hornet movie. I said it before and I'll say it again, remember what they did to Starsky and Hutch!!!

People here take casting choices and movie concepts so pesonally when in fact they could just NOT SEE THE MOVIES and go on with their lives.

Why all the hate? Seth Rogen is a down-to-earth dude. I feel for the guy. However, unlike some below me, my happiness in life does not depend entirely on the success or failure of Seth Rogen's career. I think people just automatically hate anything popular.

Maybe they'll do it right

I'm more partial to a Green Lantern adaptation. But, maybe the push-back will be a good thing.

Joblo.com is obsessed with Seth Rogen for some reason. I don't understand it. If he was cast as the lead in Ghostbusters 3, this site would be praising the shit out of it.

Transformers sucks.

Thumbs up for bashing Transformers 2. You can't bash it enough.

Rogen, Apatow has not let you down so far.

How fashionable. Thumbs down for *MORE* Transformers 2 bashing from this site.
Thumbs down for Rogen thinking the movie's gonna be worthy of comparing to such films as I Am Legend and Avatar.
Thumbs down for the whole idea in and of the movie itself. Still not buying it.

They also said pushing it back would allow for another Comic Con appearance. Ultimately... who would give a shit about that?

Smurfs 3D and Yogi Bear???

They're so similar, why would they be on the same day? I'm pleased with the Hornet change.
