Invincible, the Robert Kirkman superhero from Image Comics, is finally headed to the big screen. The Hollywood Reporter reports Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg will write, direct and produce the movie for Universal Studios.
Variety is reporting that Seth Rogen has joined The B-Team as producer and possible star for the spy comedy.

Variety is reporting that Christoph Waltz has joined the cast of The Green Hornet as the big bad boss that will attempt to unite the crime bosses of Los Angeles.Â Those who have seen “Inglourious Basterds” will recognize Waltz as the Nazi Colonel from the film.
