This new video from Splash News isn't that impressive, but it features our first look at Seth Rogen as Britt Reid, aka The Green Hornet, on the set of his new movie The Green Hornet. That first look at his costume pops up right around 32 seconds into the video, but besides that, this features a whole lot of explosions and action scenes that would give Michael Bay a hard on. And if I have to make a statement, I like the look, I think it's a fitting contemporary version of the Green Hornet costume worn by Van Williams back in the 60's. I'm digging the vest. Come on, did anyone think Michel Gondry wouldn't have great costume design?!
Update: Apparently that's actually Rogen's stunt double seen in the video above. However, JFX Online has some actual photos of Rogen in his costume without his mask on the set. I've included one of those updated photos below - click the photo to see a few more shots of Rogen in that costume.
The Green Hornet is being directed by Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and was co-written by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen. The cast features Rogen as the Green Hornet, Taiwanese star Jay Chou as his sidekick Kato, as well as Cameron Diaz, Tom Wilkinson, Edward James Olmos, and Christoph Waltz as the gangster bad guy. This film is currently shooting in Los Angeles and elsewhere. Sony is hoping to have it ready by December 17th, 2010 late next year, which is when it's currently scheduled for release. It was originally set to hit in the summer but they recently pushed it back quite a bit. Thoughts?
