New The Green Hornet Featurette is All About the Action
01.06.11 by BJSprecher
Columbia Pictures recently released four new clips from director Michel Gondry's (Be Kind Rewind) The Green Hornet adaptation that showcased the movie's blend of action and comedy, but the new featurette that just debuted is all about the action. The featurette contains commentary from Gondry, title star and co-writer Seth Rogen, co-writer Evan Goldberg (Pineapple Express), and Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz, who plays the Hornet's primary antagonist, Chudnofsky. Rogen explains that practical effects were always used in favor of CGI whenever possible and praises stunt co-ordinators Scott and Andy Armstrong, who also provide some insight into how they conceptualized and executed some of the crazy stunts seen in the movie.
The Green Hornet is based on the classic masked crimefighter created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker that debuted in a 1930s radio serial. Cameron Diaz, Jay Chou, Edward Furlong, Edward James Olmos and Tom Wilkinson also star.
