I don’t care if he’s the Green Bee

Seth Rogen is in final negotiations to star as the Green
Hornet in a Columbia Pictures movie about the crime-fighting hero.

Really? Is he going to go n a huge work out mission to turn the flabby barrel into a delicious sculpted physique?
To be fair I have not seen “Knocked Up” to pass judgement, but I am still apprehensive. I was not a big fan of “The 40 Year Old Virgin”, but then again these movies are not aimed at me.

Rogen is also set to co-write and co-executive produce along with writing partner Evan Goldberg. So I guess it will take a comedy slant after all, which could be a good thing if done right, and not too campy.
Apparently after the success of “Knocked Up” projects that Seth Rogen writes and stars are said to be in the $8,000,000 range. Again…REALLY???

From the Hollywood Reporter:

The Green Hornet is about Britt Reid, a playboy who inherits his father's crusading newspaper, the Daily Sentinel, and fights crime by night with his sidekick, the martial arts master Kato. The concept started out as a radio serial and was popularized in a 1966 ABC series starring Van Williams as the Hornet and Bruce Lee as Kato.

Don't care much about Seth either, but I'm dying to see who they cast as Kato!

Seth Rogan as The Green Hornet doesn't seem like a good fit to me. But who knows? I'll wait until I see a trailer.
