At the Superbad Panel at “the con” Seth Rogen stated the Green Hornet movie he and fellow scribe Evan Goldberg were working on would be an action movie and not a comedy.

Be that as it may, with Rogen set to star in the movie, I really wonder how people will take the film seriously. It’s kind of like Jack Black playing Green Lantern.


Columbia Pictures is expecting a summer 2009 release for the film.

    Honestly? I doubt that the general public has the slightest idea who Seth Rogen is, and only a passing notion of who the Green Hornet is.

  2. The general public surely recognizes Seth Rogan as the stoned loser from Knocked Up.

    I still think this is a bizarre and horrible casting choice.

  3. I think it is a strange choice also. But thats not to say that I think its horrible. I like him, and I think he may be able to do some good stuff with a character that hasn’t been used in quite some time. Maybes he’ll get it right, maybes it’ll be a disaster. Benefit of the doubt is required I think!
