Update: Hornet back on

01.28.2009

It looks like the reports of THE GREEN HORNET's demise were greatly exaggerated. Earlier this week, it was reported that THE GREEN HORNET wasn't shooting in 2009 and may never make it before cameras. Problem is nobody told Seth Rogen. The actor/writer/producer checked in with HitFix, the site that started the rumor, to clear the air. An angry Rogen wrote in an e-mail that the film "should still hit its release date" of June 25, 2010 and that they'll be hiring a director in the next couple weeks. Seth was reportedly upset because, as he puts it, the film has "many people working for it," all who read the rumors online and thought they were losing their jobs. Meanwhile at Ain't It Cool, they're reporting that while Stephen Chow left his post as director, he's still onboard to co-star as Kato. And in one last piece of GREEN HORNET news, the LA Times is reporting that another famous superhero plays a brief but pivotal role in the film. And that superhero will be played by?.....Adam Sandler.

Extra Tidbit: The Times refused to be specific but what superhero could Sandler be playing?

The Green Hornet is supposed to be good looking. Seth Rogen is the ugliest man alive. This is going to be a very bad movie.

He's so ugly, he's hard to look at in some movies. Rogen works great for comedies, but Rogen as a super hero is going to be retarded. It's kind of like hiring Benecio Deltoro to play Superman.

Good news, I think this movie has potential.

Unless it's a flashback scene, wouldn't Sandler be too young to play the Lone Ranger in the time of the Green Hornet, b/c that was my first guess also.

This movie is going to suck donkey balls, mainly due to Rogen with a little help now from Sandler.

I am excited

I think this will be pretty cool, we can have fun with films; not every movie has to be dark knight! I think it is funny how Seth Rogen has made nothing but classic films(Superbad, Knocked Up, Pineapple Express) yet everyone hates him so much and suddenly he is a hack that everyone hates. The guy is super talented and I think this will be a fun ride

Good. Glad to hear Rogen is still on board and that this is still happening. For some reason I must be the only one in the world looking forward to this.

You know...If they had to get a new director I wouldn't mind seeing David Gordon Green step up to the plate again. He was great for Pineapple Express, seeing how he did some great comedy and action together...
