Jul 21 2009'Green Hornet' Getting More Questionable, Cagier

As if the idea of a Michel Gondry-directed action film starring Seth Rogen as a famous masked hero wasn't dubious (though admittedly intriguing) enough already, Variety is reporting some Green Hornet casting updates that should make the image of a question mark pop into existence above your head. Nicolas Cage and Cameron Diaz, both of whom seem nearly incapable of making a decent film without the involvement of Spike Jonze, are in talks to join:

Columbia Pictures is in early talks with Nicolas Cage to play the gangster villain in "The Green Hornet."

Cameron Diaz is negotiating to play a reporter and love interest in the Michel Gondry-directed pic that stars Seth Rogen as the masked crime fighter.

The picture is moving full steam ahead for a fall start date, even as the studio looks to replace Stephen Chow, who was going to play sidekick Kato.

Well, I hope they're able to get Eddie Murphy's voice for Kato the Talking Cat. If they're set on making this the most improbable-to-succeed movie ever, that's going to be key.

FIRST LOL HAHAHHAHA

Not so worried about the Cageiness... But Not having Stephen Chow as Kato doesn't bode well for a finished project. I guess they could try to bring Bruce Lee back from the dead.

CORALINE NOW ON 2-DISC DVD & BLUE-RAY HI-DEF! INCLUDES 3-D VERSION OF THE MOVIE & 4 PAIRS OF GLASSES!

I understand that it seems "cool" to bash on Cage these days, but it makes you look really stupid. This site is better than that.

Props for the awesome picture, though.

Cage was awesome as Fu Manchu.

Charlie Kaufman seems to be missing from this equation. And will perhaps be missed even more when the movie comes out.

This picture makes Nick Cage look like he's popping a nut....in the bushes no less!!!!!
