‘Green Hornet’ Already Prepping for San Diego
"Comic-Con is my favorite event of the year," Seth Rogen told Sci Fi Wire. "It’s more fun to me than the movie premieres, than anything. I love Comic-Con. All of our friends come down for it, and we just have a really good time, and it’s always a lot of fun. I would love nothing more than to be able to show something at Comic-Con."
Rogen is meeting this week with Sony executives and director Stephen Chow to begin planning how best to promote Rogen’s Green Hornet feature film at next July’s event considering little footage will be ready. Filming doesn’t begin until May presuming the actors do not strike in the meantime. The actor has begun exercising and dieting to prepare for the part of Britt Reid, the newspaper executive, who becomes the notorious crime fighter, aided by his chauffeur, Kato (Chow).
"The process has been very collaborative and very good," Rogen said about working with Chow. "He’s given us a lot of ideas. His English is …well, we keep saying when we all come out of this, we will be great communicators. He’s made great strides, I will say. It presents its own challenges at times. We get along really, really well. We are really just starting the process, very little has actually been done. … We’re actually in the very preliminary stages right now."
The movie is slated for a summer 2010 release, in between Iron Man 2 and Thor.
