A Michel Gondry directed, Seth Rogen written action comedy at first seems like a pretty random collaboration, but it has all the staples of a big budget superhero film, with a tragic origin story, city corruption, car-mounted machine guns, a generous dose of comedy, and Cameron Diaz as a sexy secretary. Rogen stars as an heir to a media empire, who finally makes something of himself when he crosses paths with Kato (Jay Chou), who brings all the gadget-savvy know-how to their vigilante operation. It’s hard to believe this is the same director who made The Science of Sleep, Enternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Be Kind Rewind, but.it will be exciting to see Gondry’s transition into the budget studio film.
The Green Hornet is set for release earlier 2011. Check out the trailer below.
