Future Musings: The Green Hornet

with one comment

ComingSoon.net has a new entry on the upcoming Green Hornet movie that made me want to sound off.

I remember stumbling onto some episodes of the TV show The Green Hornet many years ago, and remember not enjoying it at all. I know I may have been much younger, but Rogen’s audience primarily consists of the 15-30 year old sector that I’m a part of now, and while he may be able to pique some interest in reviving an old-school TV show into an action movie (action comedy, perhaps?), this one wreaks of “Summer Blockbusters that FLOP”. (It’s currently slated for June 2010)

Suddenly, Seth Rogen has become somewhat of a hot commodity, after hits like Knocked Up and Superbad (not so much for his acting, but he is in it). And the thing is, they’re billing this as an action movie. I highly doubt it’s in a league with action movies that first come to mind, and I’ll need some convincing to buy Seth Rogen as an action hero…..In any sense of the word.

No disrespect toward Rogen, but I don’t think The Green Hornet is as appealing as he thinks (him, and whoever else’s idea it was). After a little more surfaces from this film (it’s not even totally written yet), I might be open to the possibility of Rogen in the role of the Green Hornet and to the film itself.

Until then, I’m not buyin’ it…..
