Default Re: Seth rogen to be the green hornet?

just heard about this. this is great news indeed

i think we need need some comedy, specially for films that start up a franchise. making your audience laugh generally helps a film at the box office, so long as it isnt over the top and that it still fits the story and the theme of the Green Hornet franchise.

The Green Hornet pre-dates comic books, he is based on/inspired from pulp heroes [biggest influence would be The Shadow]. While some heroes of the pulp era [including those that originated on the radio, like the GH, or comic strips] did have a few recurring villains they primarily matched themselves against new foes; usually when a criminal was defeated he stayed defeated.

Dude, no offense to you...but whenever people use those "Blablah meets blablah" quotes, it makes me so angry I throw up acid.

Look, just because Seth Rogen was in Pineapple Express, doesn't mean that Britt Reid will be a stoner, you know?

It's like that quote on the "School for scoundrels" DVD: "It's Napoleon Dynamite meets Bad Santa!!!!11"

UGH!!!!!!

Anyway....again, no offense to you

I'm entirely positive Britt will not be a stoner that's not what I was getting at.

Rogen and Evan both wrote Pineapple Express and they wrote this so no doubt the film has been written in the same kind of style as it is their writing style.

Kung Fu Hustle has its own style of action/comedy which is much more out-of-this-world/ sight gags and over-the-top action than most American action comedies.

My statement was just pointing out that this film will most likely make an interesting blend of Eastern and Western comedy/action styles which 'could work'

If statements like this upset you in any way then you have some issues and should probably consider taking anger management.

by the way, School for scoundrels was totally "Napoleon Dynamite meets Bad Santa"

The Green Hornet Gets Less Serious?

So it's definitely less serious than a serious film, that's for sure. We want the action... I say now that we want the action to play serious but Stephen could come in tomorrow and say 'You know what? I want to throw you 400 feet in the air!' and I'd go, 'OK, that sounds cool.'"

Hmmm this sucks. I do remember once Stephen Chow saying that he likes to do original movies not a movie based on some property or franchise. I don't know why but I get this sick feeling that Tim Story is going to do this.

i think seth rogan knows better than to hire a guy like Tim Story, you know? He's the guy who woo Stepen in the first place. I'm sure that they'll get someone good. I hope.

Anyone seen any recent pics of Rogen? He has slimmed down a lot and put on some muscle. Looking good

Honestly, this is one movie I wouldn't mind Hackner ruining. If it's not already rotten from the inside.

US magazine. I actually found a picture but it's not the greatest (he's wearing a sweater so it's harder to tell).

Heh I still remember people saying "He's a fatass, he'll never be a physically fit Green Hornet".
Yeah, because actors can't lose weight
Eat it, nay-sayers.

LOL, you may be right. But the idea of adding Ratner to anything is damn near a guarantee that it will only get worse. So you could go from having a bad movie to a Raspberry Award winner.
