Yahoo! Movies has the first official images of the upcoming Seth Rogen The Green Hornet film that arrives in theaters on January 14, 2011.

Britt Reid (Seth Rogen) is the son of LA’s most prominent and respected media magnate and perfectly happy to maintain a directionless existence on the party scene – until his father (Tom Wilkinson) mysteriously dies, leaving Britt his vast media empire. Striking an unlikely friendship with one of his father’s more industrious and inventive employees, Kato (Jay Chou), they see their chance to do something meaningful for the first time in their lives: fight crime. But in order to do this, they decide to become criminals themselves – protecting the law by breaking it, Britt becomes the vigilante The Green Hornet as he and Kato hit the streets.The Green Hornet and Kato quickly start making a name for themselves, and with the help of Britt’s new secretary, Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz), they begin hunting down the man who controls LA’s gritty underworld: Benjamin Chudnofsky (Christoph Waltz). But Chudnofsky has plans of his own: to swat down The Green Hornet once and for all.

The movie has had several starts and stops, and the release date has been pushed back a couple of times, the most recent push to make the film 3-D.  Here’s hoping it’s all worth it in the end.

  1. Hm. This seems a lot like what is happening in Kevin Smith’s Green Hornet right now (with the obvious exception that in this case Brit’s father wasn’t the Hornet first)…

    With all the starts and stops this film has had (not to mention the random move to make it 3D, I’m not optimistic that it’s going to be a valued addition to the comic adpatation cannon. Still, who am I kidding? I’ll probably still see it in theatres.
