sethrogen-032509During a press event for his upcoming comedy Observe and Report, actor Seth Rogen talked about the upcoming superhero film The Green Hornet.  Rogen once again confirmed that the film has a “tentative start date” for the end of June.  Rogen also talked a bit about Stephen Chow’s invovlement:

He’s kind of our mascot. (laughs) He may be Kato. I’m not 100% sure if that’s the case, but it’s a very likely possibility. I’m not sure. Honestly, we’re kind of in the very early phases right now. We’re just putting those elements in place so I’m being honest. I honestly don’t know yet.

Similarly to what he told SCI FI Wire, the character will be Lone Ranger’s grandnephew:

He’s actually the Lone Ranger’s grandnephew. The Lone Ranger is owned by Jerry Bruckheimer so that probably limits the amount of involvement we can actually have in that movie. We were inspired by the original. We kind of took what we thought was good and left what we didn’t. Honestly, we didn’t feel any real obligation living up to the original because the radio plays totally different than the TV show which is different than the comic book. There is no real set way.

sethrogen-030609Seth Rogen is doing press for his latest film Monsters vs. Aliens, but found some time to talk about Green Hornet, which he co-wrote and stars in.

According to MovieHole, Rogen says that the film will begin shooting this June.  Rogen also reiterated that the film will not be an origin story in the traditional sense and will be unlike every other superhero film out there.  Rogen also said that it’ll concentrate on the relationship bettween Green Hornet and Kato (played by Stephen Chow).
