Release Date for 'The Green Hornet' Pushed Back Five Months

While some progress in the cast ensemble indicated that "The Green Hornet " is moving forward, the film's release date has been pushed back five months, making it a winter film instead of a summer one. Box Office Mojo was the first which hinted the film has been delayed by mentioning that the old release date July 9, 2010 has been moved to December 17, 2010. Talking about the delay, Seth Rogen, who has been attached to star in the film, said he is relieved about the date change as it gives some benefits in the film-making process. "We're both relieved and psyched about the change," he stated. "It gives more time for post, which would have been immensely rushed if we were to come out in the summer." Beside providing more time for the production, Rogen believes the delay will be an advantage for the marketing of the movie as he argued, "It also affords us more time to promote the film, (now we can go to Comic-Con with more than a car!) and ultimately is a great vote of confidence from the studio." The actor then added, "We got the same date that movies like 'I Am Legend' and ' Avatar ' are getting, so we're thrilled to be there." Before getting the 2010 winter slot, "The Green Hornet" actually had been delayed once. Initially scheduled to be released in the U.S. on June 25, 2010, the film was pushed back for about two weeks to July 9 in the same year. Directed by Michael Gondry, the action movie tapped Seth Rogen as the titular character. Joining him in the cast are Jay Chow who plays Kato, Nicolas Cage as Mr. X and Cameron Diaz who will star as Lenore Case. As an adaptation of WXYZ's radio show created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker, it centers on Britt Reid, a newspaper publisher by day and masked vigilante "Green Hornet" by night, and his adventures in fighting crimes. Source Here

Seth Rogen Shows Off Green Hornet's Sweet Ride

Seth Rogen kicked off Comic-Con 2009 in San Diego with the unveiling of the Green Hornet 's sweet ride: the "Black Beauty." Rogen, who stars in the 2010 film and co-wrote the script, co-writer Evan Goldberg and director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) presented a first look at the souped-up black 1966 Chrysler Imperial that the Green Hornet and his sidekick Kato drive at the convention. Gondry replaces Hong Kong comedian Stephen Chow as the adaptation's director, according to the Associated Press. Chow quit the production (he was also set to play Kato) to focus on developing another superhero movie with Jack Black. Nicolas Cage and Cameron Diaz are in talks to join the project, playing a gangster villain and reporter, respectively. Source & Video Here

Never Mind About 'Green Hornet' Being Cancelled

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???" Source here
