Following a Monday report that The Green Hornet was most likely cancelled, writer Seth Rogen shot back with some emails to HitFix's Drew McWeeny, who first reported the story. Apparently the film is still happening, and Rogen isn't pleased people are saying otherwise:
"'The Green Hornet' has many people working for it, including production designers, costume designers and many conceptual artists, office staff, etc.," he said during our e-mail exchange back and forth. "[The studio heads] have every intention on making it, and assuming we're able to hire a new director in the upcoming weeks, which seems like a distinct possibilty, it should still hit the release date."
He makes a good point about how unsubstantiated rumors can make those working for the film needlessly worry. Like, I bet when Christopher Nolan read this story, he was really freaking out. "Fuck ME--I hired Eddie Murphy???"
