i never saw a single episode, and i have no idea what the story of green hornet is like, so i could care less what they do with the property...

but involve seth rogen? well, i'm immediately there. get that guy in a little better shape (he obviously put on weight between 40 year old virgin and knocked up) and give him a face mask, and eff it.

Those types of comedies pretty much appeal to most of the people on the boards here. Not all, but most. You may find that you're in the select minority, and want to evaluate your presence here on the boards, and whether it is in your best interests.

Perhaps there may be something else out there or another group that may share similar views.

Every movie you mentioned, I personally thought was hilarious.

Dudes,

Rogen nestles into 'Hornet' hive

Columbia taps 'Knocked Up' star for action pic

By DIANE GARRETT





Rogen

Seth Rogen, action star?
The doughy star of this summer's breakout hit, "Knocked Up," is finalizing a deal to write, and likely star in, Columbia's bigscreen adaptation of "Green Hornet." He will exec produce, along with co-writer and frequent collaborator Evan Goldberg.
Rogen would play Brit Reid, millionaire publisher-turned-masked crime fighter -- a role George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg and Jake Gyllenhaal flirted with in various stages of the project's long gestation.
"The Green Hornet" started as a radio serial before being turned into a comicbook, film and TV skein by the 1960s. TV show was notable for the presence of the late Bruce Lee as sidekick Kato, a kung fu expert with a killer car.
However, the project -- which seems almost old-fashioned compared with today's elaborate superhero movies -- has struggled to get off the ground in recent years. Universal and Miramax both abandoned the project before producer Neal Moritz set it up at Columbia a few months ago (Daily Variety, March 21).
Rogen has developed into a potent double threat at the instigation of Judd Apatow, who cast the Canadian in "Undeclared" while he was still a teen and then pushed him to write for the short-lived skein. Rogen co-produced and appeared in a key supporting role in Apatow's "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and has since set up several writing and acting projects around town. "Superbad," the first script he wrote with Goldberg, will bow from Columbia next month.
He originally wrote it for himself, but the project took so long to get off that ground that he has a supporting role as a cop in it. Rogen is skedded to appear at Comic-Con next week to tubthump the movie.
Also in the works: "The Pineapple Express," which he co-wrote and will star in for Col; and "Drillbit Taylor," a Paramount project. He has several acting projects in the works, including "The Spiderwick Chronicles," "Fanboys" and a voice for "Horton Hears a Who."
UTA reps Rogen.

Date in print: Fri., Jul. 20, 2007, Los Angeles







__________________________________________________ ______________

as you can see Seth Rogen is up to Executive Producer, co-writer and STAR as Britt Reid in the Green Hornet.

How is this? Not good. I'm hoping that this deal does NOT happen as it will be a suck fest.

I'm at a loss for words about the direction for this franchise. That stems, in part, from the fact that I don't relly know what to think. Even if a comedic version turns out to be good, it's still not what any of the fans want for this movie.

Sounds like they plan on going the I-Spy/Starsky and Hutch/Charlie's Angels comedy camp route if Rogen is chosen as the lead.

Whether Rogen is the Hornet or not, he's writing it as camp. According to the LA Times, he is starring in the lead, though.

Rogen Wants Chow for Kato?
Source: Los Angeles Times July 21, 2007


The Los Angeles Times, which broke the news about Seth Rogen writing and starring in The Green Hornet, is now saying the Knocked Up star wants Kung Fu Hustle director and actor Stephen Chow to play Kato in his comedic take on the comic book.

The "Green Hornet" TV show was notable for the presence of the late Bruce Lee as sidekick Kato, a kung fu expert with a killer car.

Rogen would play Brit Reid, millionaire publisher-turned-masked crime fighter. The film will be produced by Neal H. Moritz at Columbia Pictures.
There you go

This is really f**king disappointing. The possibility of a George Clooney/Jet Li Green Hornet film last year was exciting to me....

Isn't he a little too heavy set for this role?? It's like rumours of getting Jack Black to play the Green Lantern.

I agree that if Stephen Chow was in this film, it would be a good enough reason to watch it (I miss your Kung Fu Hustle avatar btw Gammy).
BUT, Stephen Chow is a quite important director also and he may just not make the film because of his schedule.

Why call this movie Green Hornet?

It's obviously a spoof. You don't need the same names/characters to do a spoof.

"Comedy" or not, Seth Rogen is incredibly talented, and I'm more eager to see any movie he's involved in than some braindead Brett Ratner garbage starring Orlando Bloom.

Knocked Up was a better written and acted film than any of this year's "superhero" offerings.

Look outside the box for once. Joel Schumacher wasn't known for camp crap before Batman & Robin, and look how well that "safe" choice turned out.

Well if Jack Black was going to be Green Lantern it's probably not going to be a serious take on the comics.
