The Green Hornet
While looking at superhero films and comicbook adaptations, the LA Times Blog couldn't help but discuss The Green Hornet. Especially since they recently spotted Seth Rogen while roaming Sunset Boulevard. While the report spends time discussing some of the drama to take place around the production, it does take a break to quickly mention a very cool cameo appearance.
Adam Sandler Appearing in The Green Hornet
Here is the report on The Green Hornet. Right around the bottom you will spot mention of Adam Sandler and his 'key' role.
I debated the idea of going over before his food arrived and asking a question or two about "The Green Hornet" but I opted not to because, well, who wants to bug a guy while he's relaxing at lunch? Anyway, there's been much discussion of "Hornet" after the strange doings with Stephen Chow who was brought in as Kato, then helped steer the all-action film into a comedy project, signed on as director and then quit that job over creative differences -- but differences that weren't intense enough for him to abandon the Kato role. Got all that? Rogen is the co-writer of the film and the title character and while the project helped him get in trim shape, it's not yet clear what else he is accomplishing with it. (I also heard a random rumor about the 'Hornet' film: Two different people in the industry told me that Adam Sandler has a brief but key role in the movie as a certain surprise superhero...I heard which one, too, but I don't want to ruin it. Sandler and Rogen have another project together as well.)
So there is a chance we'll see him... If the film gets made.
The Green Hornet was expected to open on June 25th, 2010.
