Green Hornet at Comic-Con 2009

Sci Fi Wire had a chance to interview actor Seth Rogen (Superbad, Pineapple Express, Zack and Miri Make a Porno) to discuss his upcoming film which he is writing and starring in, "The Green Hornet."

Rogen's goal is to have a clip or trailer for the film ready for the 2009 Comic-Con.

“Comic-Con is my favorite event of the year,” Rogen said in the Sci Fi Wire piece. “It’s more fun to me than the movie premieres, than anything. I love Comic-Con. All of our friends come down for it, and we just have a really good time, and it’s always a lot of fun. I would love nothing more than to be able to show something at Comic-Con.”

According to Rogen, there are a few problems with having that ready by then. One, filming hasn't started yet (it is planned on starting in May of 2009) and two, Rogen is having communication troubles with Stephen Chow (who will be both directing and acting as Kato in the movie).

“[Chow]’s given us a lot of ideas,” said Rogen. “His English is…well, we keep saying when we all come out of this, we will be great communicators. He’s made great strides, I will say. It presents its own challenges at times. We get along really, really well. We are really just starting the process, very little has actually been done. We’re actually in the very preliminary stages right now.”

"The Green Hornet" is set to hit theaters June 25, 2010!
