40-Year-Old Virgin... Knocked Up... Super Bad... Green Hornet? :)

Sony is moving forward with what may be the most unlikely superhero film yet: The Green Hornet starring Seth Rogen. The Knocked Up star will play Britt Reid, a bored playboy who inherits his father's crusading newspaper and spends his nights fighting crime with his sidekick, Kato. Additionally, Rogen is currently penning the film's script with his writing partner, Evan Goldberg (Superbad); Sony has yet to hire a director for the project. Hornet is due in theaters on June 25, 2010.

I guess that means he's going to start working out?

I wonder who they will get to play Kato.

I can see it if he could drop himself to ~200.

Would be funny if the guy who played Bruce Lee in Dragon played Kato.

Green Hornet probably doesn't blaze so I don't know if he'll be able to pull it off convincingly.

Wait, what? Why is his name Green Hornet if he doesn't smoke?!




I never watched the original GH and I mostly like Rogen, but I don't currently see how this could go well.

ditto. it just doesn't seem to be his type of character. it could be either very good or very bad.

Awesome. It will probably be more of a comedy. Having Rogan be the Green Hornet makes sense because the Green Hornet would always fuck up and need to be saved by Kato, which I'm sure will be a running joke in the film.

Hopefully it will turn out like the Starsky and Hutch remake that parodies the source material.

I have a feeling it is going to be a comedy. Especialy since there were rumors of Jack Black taking on the role a couple years ago.

Kato = John Cho

But if they use fattie Seth Rogan then Kato = Bobbie Lee :)
