Green Hornet Pushed Back to January

Sony Pictures has decided to give the Michel Gondry-directed The Green Hornet, starring Seth Rogen, the 3D treatment. Because of this, the studio has announced it is moving the film back from December 22 to January 14, 2011–Martin Luther King Jr. weekend–so that it will be released when there are sufficient 3D screens available.

This removes the action-comedy from the busy late December time slot but gives the movie a 4-day holiday weekend against Tyler Perry’s For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf and MGM’s The Cabin in the Woods, which was pushed back for 3D conversion.

This means that the Screen Gems 3D horror flick Priest, also based on a comic character, will move from a Jan. 14 release to March 4.
