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.
You ask for too much of some people here

this is great news, Rogen is on the fast track to super stardom, and this may be his final stop before he gets there

At the same time the Green Hornet has been by no means Batman with its serious subject matter, I mean for about 5 years Kevin Smith was gunna make the movie, and he has said the movie would have been an action-comedy, so obviously more people than not, including the main writer of the recent comics thinks that there is a substantial amount of comdeic or campyness to the franchise

I think because so few of us are familiar with Green Hornet we're giving Rogen a pass is because we're not all 100% familiar with Green Hornet. Now if it was Rogen doing a mainstream superhero the tide would turn considerably.

Chow is so awesome. I loved Shoalin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle. If he plays Kaito, that would really be cool.

Actually, it could work in the sense of Big Trouble in Little China worked... Jack Burton was a dork and Wang Chi kicked ass (while being funny as well).

If they told me Seth Rogen were to lose at least 50 pounds and take this project seriously, then I'd be on board with this. After hearing that this could possibly be a comedic take on Green Hornet, I've decided to write this one of for now.

One too many comic characters have been screwed over as of late when it comes to their movies. I've had high hopes for a lot of them, and was dissapointed in the end result. This news actually doesn't suprise me.

Ah well, I've got some old Green Hornet videos to watch and enjoy. Yeah!

Rogen confirmed at Comic-Con (i believe) that the Green Hornet movie will NOT be a comedy... it will be an action movie....

Agreed, but firstly we need to know what he thinks about the whole idea of project.

Remember when that old MTV sketch was aired with Jack Black as Spider-man?

That was made to be a 5 minute funny parody.

I'm often reminded of that when I think of Rogan as GH. Except it'll be longer.

I guess we could give the little guy a chance, right?

i think he needs to get on a scale, subtract his weight by about 50... then like, weight that much.

you know, tighten.

he's awesome... he just needs to look the role more.

as far as I can see, Rogen is buffing up somewhat... we may not be in trouble after all

Looks like the movie got the official greenlight. I know most people trash it, but I thought The Shadow with Alec Baldwin was quite enjoyable, so if this is similar in execution, I'll see it (even if others probably won't).

The only question is, have they chosen Rogen's comedic route or the action route? He said he had written two completely different interpretations of the story.
