The Green Hornet
 
From the main SHH page:Rogen to Write and Star in Green Hornet?
Source: Los Angeles Times
July 19, 2007


The Los Angeles Times is reporting the unconfirmed news that Knocked Up star Seth Rogen has signed a deal to write and likely star in The Green Hornet for Columbia Pictures:

Neal H. Moritz is developing the project with Rogen via the producer's Original Film company. Moritz has been chasing the rights for years having been a big fan of the '60s television series. He declined to comment on Rogen's involvement.

Rogen's deal was confirmed to the Los Angeles Times by a number of sources both inside and outside the studio, who are involved with the film. Sony is said to be eyeing a 2009 release. Sony president of production Matt Tolmach is expected to oversee for Columbia Pictures.

I had hopes for the project when it seemed like they'd approach it seriously. However, as much as I like Rogen as a comedian, this news basically dashes any hopes I had for the film.

For the record, I love Seth Rogen. He's great. But, if this is true, Neal Moritz and Columbia can go fornicate each other with steal pipes...



...rusty steal pipes.

They may NOT approach it as pure comedy. Let's wait and see what they do with it. Rogen COULD lose like 60 lbs. play it seriously with clever lines and witty comedy. He's not necessarily limited to college-boy comedy.

I try to be optimistic. Hopefully they don't turn this into a pure comedy. So much could be done with this...

if you place all of the movies that could have been good, and were, on one side of the scale. and all of the movies that could have been good, and were total bile on the other side. which side do you think wouldhit the ground?

I try not to jump to rash decisions when I hear of the first casting choice for movies......but I have to say.....ARE THEY FREAKING KIDDING?

Let's not jump to conclusions people! It didn't say that Rogan would play Green Hornet. It said he would star in it which could mean ANYTHING! Marlon Brando and Gene Hackman starred in Superman. Jack Nicholson starred in Batman! So, let's not jump to conclusion.

As for him writing. . .he may be a fan and do a good job.

If that's the case, put Margaret Cho in as Kato.

Wait... they never said he was Green Hornet!!! WTF, why are people confused there? Lmaol!!!! He could be anybody, they never said he was the Green Hornet. This isn't Jack Black is Green Lantern people, relax.

Re: Seth rogen to be the green hornet?
 
he is rumored to write it though, and if his writing is anything like his acting its reason enough to get pissed

haha...is this serious?? His writing is good...Ali G anyone, and he was hilarious in both 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up(which he WILL receive Golden Globe nom for)

Re: Seth rogen to be the green hornet?
 
I've been thinking about this, and I'll ask this question:

Is this really any different than "Kevin Smith to write and direct Green Hornet?" If Rogen is a fan, and he strikes me as the kind of guy who would be, do you think he'd piss all over the brand?

Tempest19 07-19-2007 09:35 PM

Re: Seth rogen to be the green hornet?
 
Superbad also looks to be good, which is his first feature film writing job.

I still would have wished for Kevin Smith though. He SERIOUSLY needs to write a comic book movie someday!!! I personally love the graphic novels that he has written, especially his take on Daredevil and Green Arrow.

i'm always in the minority it seems, but especially when it comes to comedys.
still don't see how anyone thought 40 year old virgin, old school, wedding crashers, dodgeball, anchorman, or talledega nights were funny.

i hope he isn't playing Green Hornet!

Tempest19 07-19-2007 10:17 PM

Re: Seth rogen to be the green hornet?
 
Doubt it. Possible a tech guy? I could easily see him in a role along those lines in a film like this... similar to Smith's character in 'Die Hard'.
