Green Hornet Villain Announced
Seth Rogan’s Green Hornet adaptation has been plagued with delays, rewrites and changes of staff. Things started to look up for me when Michel Gondry signed up to direct the film earlier on this year and my excitement continued to grow when Nicholas Cage signed onto the film as the villain who has been simply described as “a gangster who tangles with the Green Hornet.” Well now for whatever reason (money) Cage has walked away from the film leaving the role open for somebody to come in and take it, and boy has the replacement gotten me completely excited for this film.
Christoph Waltz has signed onto to replace Cage as the films villain which for me at least is absolutely fantastic news. If you don’t recognise the name you then you should he recently stole the show in Quentin Tarantino’s latest masterpiece, Inglorious Basterds as that films villain Hans Lander. I can’t wait to see what he brings to role of a comic villain and I’m glad that he’s getting snapped up for a big role staright off the back of Basterds. Unfortunately we probably won’t hear too much about the film until the 2010 San Diego Comic Con before it gets a worldwide released next Christmas.
