Can you picture Seth Rogen as The Green Hornet? Well, try harder, because the “Knocked Up” comedy star will be putting on the famous mask of the crime fighter, who was originally created in the 1930s for an old time radio program. Britt Reid is a newspaper publisher by day who by night fights crime with the help of his Asian manservant Kato. Sony Pictures has scheduled the film for June 25, 2010, according to Entertainment Weekly. Rogen is writing the script with Evan Goldberg.
For years Evan and I have been toying with this notion of a movie that explores the hero/sidekick relationship and what is a hero without a sidekick and what is a sidekick without a hero.
