Last week during Sundance, news spread that Seth Rogen’s Green Hornet project was in trouble, and would soon be getting the axe by Sony. But according to Rogen himself, who has sent in a email to CHUD, the project is still very much a go:
“[The studio heads] have every intention on making it, and assuming we’re able to hire a new director in the upcoming weeks, which seems like a distinct possibilty [sic], it should still hit the release date.”
That release date, by the way, is June 25, 2010.
There’s also some news in regards to departed director Stephen Chow. AICN is insisting that Chow’s departure from the project was directorial only and that he will STILL play the role of sidekick Kato.
