Seth Rogen is in Australia to promote Monsters vs. Aliens and he talked to “The Jono & Dano Show” (via Moviehole) about his big screen adaptation of The Green Hornet.
He told the radio show that Columbia Pictures plans to begin filming in June. It will be an origin story but not in the traditional sense. It’ll be unlike every other superhero film out there, Rogen said.
The film will concentrate a lot on the relationship between these two different cats – The Green Hornet (who Rogen says is just “a normal guy”) and Stephen Chow’s Kato (who Rogen says is the one that does all the superhero stuff).
The Green Hornet, to be directed by Michel Gondry, is scheduled for a June 25, 2010 release.
