Seth Rogen Lays Out Some Info On The Green Hornet

Collider caught up with Seth Rogen to lay out some info on his early anticipated comic adaptation of The Green Hornet, here's what he had to say:
“You know he really does not want to. Me and Evan have actually approached him with ideas like maybe we could do something like this…you could do some of your weird people made out of string and shit like that. He’s like, “No, I don’t want to any of that. The fact that you think I want to do that drives me crazy and makes me never want to do anything like that again.” He hates being predictable and repetitive and doing what’s been done before. As soon as he starts to feel like he’s expected to do something he doesn’t want to do it at all.”

The other thing he was asked was is the film still the hero/sidekick story. Seth said, “Yeah and I’d say if anything it’s taken on…at first we were kind of resisting the notion of an origin story but then we realized if we kind of embraced it and played with that idea it could be a lot better so that’s something we’ve added."

Finally, he was asked if he was going to be able to do Kevin Smith’s sci-fi film. Seth said, “I don’t know. He’s doing that other movie now. He hasn’t written it as far as I know.”
