Seth Rogen Updates The Green Hornet
03.26.09 by REELZ
Everybody's favorite fat guy, Seth Rogan is slimming down and getting serious about The Green Hornet -- his first comic book movie. And he's given an update on its progress to SuperheroHype.com.
On the start date:
Right now the end of June. That is our tentative start date.
About Stephen Chow's involvement:
He's kind of our mascot. (laughs) He may be Kato. I'm not 100% sure if that's the case, but it's a very likely possibility. I'm not sure. Honestly, we're kind of in the very early phases right now. We're just putting those elements in place so I'm being honest. I honestly don't know yet.
On sticking to the The Green Hornet's origins:
He's actually the Lone Ranger's grandnephew. The Lone Ranger is owned by Jerry Bruckheimer so that probably limits the amount of involvement we can actually have in that movie. We were inspired by the original. We kind of took what we thought was good and left what we didn't. Honestly, we didn't feel any real obligation living up to the original because the radio plays totally different than the TV show which is different than the comic book. There is no real set way.
