A while ago we reported that Kung Fu Hustle star, Stephen Chow had left Seth Rogen’s Green Hornet film. The hunt to find a replacement has now ended with the casting of Jay Chou in the role of the Green Hornet’s ass kicking side kick.
When speaking about Chou’s casting the films’s director, Michel Gondry, had this to say. “Jay is incredibly unique and charming and fights like a wild dog!”
Another news surrounding the film is Nicolas Cage is in talks to play a villain and Cameron Diaz is lined up for the role of love interest.
All of this news is great but I’m still not convinced Seth Rogan is right for the title role. I really hope he can pull this off because if done right this could be a great action adventure film.

Stephen Chow of Kung Fu Hustle fame has left Seth Rogen’s Green Hornet film. Stephen had originally come on board as a director as well at the Green Hornet’s sidekick Kato.
On Paper The Green Hornet is a film I should be excited about but I’m the complete opposite. I mean a masked vigilante with an ass kicking sidekick and a car outfitted with gadgets galore, called “Black Beauty” what’s not to like? My main problem is yeah I’ve enjoyed Seth Rogan in some of the films I’ve seen him in but I just can’t picture him in this role. At least the not the way I want to see the role played. I also want Green Hornet to be straight up pulp adventure and I’m worried even though Seth says he’s playing it straight that I’m going to get the ‘Knocked Up’ version of The Green Hornet.
I hope you prove me wrong Seth.
