I think it's because I like Green Hornet enough, but I don't have any sort of attachment to the material that makes me say "Okay, I'll give Seth a try".

It's understandable. I actually think you might become a "true" GH fan were it done right on film.

All we know right now is that a great director signed, a great supporting actor is involved, and Seth Rogen has shown an understanding of the material, an understanding of the genre, and commitment as seen by his slim down.

Just because people hated Seth Rogens last movie, or don't think he's appropriate because of his last movie, I dont think I should outright damn him until I actually see something

Because guess who should have made a good Punsiher? Ray Stephenson. And who should have made a good Spirit? Gabriel Macht. And who should have been a good Dr. Doom? Julian MacMahon. And Who should have been a good Lex Luthor? Kevin Spacey.
That's fine and dandy....I'm expressing my view that the Hornet shouldn't be a comedy and played by someone that Vern Troyer could beat up.

Anton Yelchin...very boyish for the character. He's more like Peter Parker than Hal to me.

Good young talent though.

Wrong thread, you are thinking of The Green Lantern thread.

In the translated version in Asia they actually changed it so Kato was the star IIRC.

Bruce Lee was both a good and bad influence on GH. He portrayed a minority sidekick as a better fighter then the hero, he was a minority super star and his presence elevated GH immensely. The drawback is that he changed the public's perception of GH to much from the franchise's intent of GH being a gret pulp super-hero. The franchise can overcome Bruce Lee's impact now. The time has come for a quality faithful GH franchise.

Seth Rogen aside, I'm mostly worried about how MUCH comedy will be in there. We can already expect horrible wire-fu and ten TONS of one-liners, but hopefully they can keep it toned down. ... A little at least.

Seth Rogen Talks Green Hornet
Source:Moviehole
March 6, 2009


Seth Rogen is in Australia to promote Monsters vs. Aliens and he talked to "The Jono & Dano Show" (via Moviehole) about his big screen adaptation of The Green Hornet.

He told the radio show that Columbia Pictures plans to begin filming in June. It will be an origin story but not in the traditional sense. It'll be unlike every other superhero film out there, Rogen said.

The film will concentrate a lot on the relationship between these two different cats - The Green Hornet (who Rogen says is just "a normal guy") and Stephen Chow's Kato (who Rogen says is the one that does all the superhero stuff).

The Green Hornet, to be directed by Michel Gondry, is scheduled for a June 25, 2010 release.

The more I hear the more it looks like a parody of the 60's tv show. Apparently Seth wants to become GH's Schumacher.
:facepalm

I don't mind a few jokes in a superhero movie, but if GH becomes more slapstick or parody than action, then i definitely will wait for the dvd.

I initially don't like the casting of seth as GH either, because he's more known as a comedic performer and don't look the part but I'm open to see if he could pull it off.

I don't think this is gonna be a very good movie. I mean, Seth Rogen? He's more of a stupid movie actor. Like oh I don't know Knocked Up, Pinapple Express. The Green Hornet doesn't exactly fit in with his kind of movies. Unless his version was " Green Hornet " was a drug he came up with and decided to have a fraternity party to celebrate it. That sounds more like Seth Rogen. I'm sad he has the part, I'd rather they not even make a movie than make one with him as GH.

I have a feeling that, based on Rogen's comments listed above, this movie will turn out a lot like "Without a Clue."

You may not be familiar with that film. It was a slapstick comedy about Sherlock Holmes (Michael Caine) who, contrary to popular belief, is a bumbling idiot. Dr. Watson actually solves all of the crimes and constantly saves the day, and Holmes takes all the credit. As a Sherlock Holmes fan, I didn't like that film. So I can only imagine that a Green Hornet film that plays the same way will not win over and GH fans.

I watched a few of the Kato scenes but really the only interest of the TV show was Kato aka Bruce Lee.
