UPDATE! Seth Rogen Says Michel Gondry's Changing Up His Style For THE GREEN HORNET!

Published at: March 24, 2009, 6:36 p.m. CST

Beaks here...

The OBSERVE & REPORT junket was held this morning in Los Angeles, which means Seth Rogen's been answering GREEN HORNET and FUNNY PEOPLE questions since he rolled out of bed. According to Collider's Steve Weintraub, he was extremely forthcoming with regards to the former - which, despite acquiring a new director, could be going before cameras in June. Most interestingly, it sounds like GREEN HORNET director Michel Gondry will be muting his signature handmade aesthetic in order to, presumably, deliver a more studio-friendly summer film. Here's what Rogen told the junketeers:
Me and Evan have actually approached him with ideas, like maybe... 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."
It also sounds like they'll be doing an origin story as well. For more on that, head over to Collider. As for whether Stephen Chow is still in the mix as Kato (he was originally set to direct), Latino Review's El Guapo has tweeted that this is currently up in the air (i.e. there's no contract). I'm sure El Guapo will have a full story up at Latino Review later in the day. Update! Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. My work (and working) computer has been off in the land beyond beyond being fixed by the Apple people, so I'm behind on posting my interviews from SXSW, but I wanted to chime in here. I interviewed Seth Rogen when he came to town with OBSERVE & REPORT and got him to talk a bit about Green Hornet... Mostly about Stephen Chow. Chow is still part of the team. Rogen mentioned meeting with him and Gondry the previous week. But like Guapo mentions in his tweet there are no done deals. But the fact that Chow is still around and interested after stepping down as director is a good sign. I hope he does it. He'd be absolutely perfect for the role. I'll have my full interview with Rogen up as soon as I can. Also chatted with Michael Pena (awesome guy) and the great Jody Hill (I'll save most of that info for the actual interview, but he did say that an 8 episode follow-up season to EASTBOUND & DOWN is being discussed right now).

    Also, I concur: This will be crap if Rogen/Rudd/Aptow et al are involved.<p>By the by, where's that story/TB about the guy doing the scores on Fast and Furious and Star Trek? It was being "updated" and "temporarily down" and it's yet to come back.<p>Couldn't have anything to do with a few potshots taken at JJ "AICN is in bed with me" Abrams new film Star Trek Returns, could it?

    Kato vs. Robin

    by FullBloodedScot

    In the old Batman show when Bruce Lee as Kato was to fight Robin, the director wanted Robin to win. Burt Ward was like "are you kidding? This is Bruce Fucking Lee...he'd crush Robin like a roach..." they ended up making it a fight to a stand still (Robin throwing his gay punches, Bruce chopping and kicking), but I think it was cool that the guy playing Robin was fanboy enough to say what he did. Rogan could do something funny with that premise, but The Green Hornet needs the treatment The Spirit deserved, but didn't get.

  • March 24, 2009, 2:37 p.m. CST

    Just saw Zack and Miri...

    by DoctorWho?

    ...and really dug it. Way better than I expected. As for Seth...his forte seems to be improvising and coming up with witty lines rather than drop dead funny shit. <p> Check out the improv outakes on SuperBad...and the shit him and Justin Long come up with in Zack and Miri is great...none of that is written on the page yet it seems so and therin lies his talent I think.<p>

    i have an inside souce that says this is a comedy

    by IndyAbbey Jones

    not a direct slapstick stoner comedy, but they are definetly going for the action/comedy feel to the film (this starsky and hutch type of a movie)..That is why chow doesn't want to diret and why gondry was chosen (eternal sunshine and be kind were both able to convey story and a bit of comedy into their plots, and thats what they want to do with a green hornet film)<P>the truth is that sony realizes a green hornet movie would do just ok or most liley fail at the box office, but they relase rogan is a huge star right now and that action/comedies always perform great at the box office<P>it hasn't been announced yet, but expect supporting roles from other apatow comedians including will farrel and john c Reily

    he was on as a second or third string buddy of kevin's. he played the same kid then, he plays the same guy now. his likeability is his doughy and passively snarky everyman character. you either like him because you have friends like him, or hate him becasue you're jealous he got famous off of playing himself and feel he ripped you off.

    Kato vs. Robin pt 2

    by Han Cholo

    From what I've heard of the story from Lee's wife, I believe, is that Burt Ward was actually talking up his martial arts skills like he could kick some ass. Lee promptly corrected him but out of respect for the production, he went along with the fight being a standstill, though everyone knows he would have beat the FUCK out of Batman, Robin, Green Hornet, and the rest of the cast and crew. Word.

  • March 24, 2009, 3:04 p.m. CST

    On Rogan being fat...

    by Han Cholo

    I saw him not too long ago on an awards show presenting with Elizabeth Banks. It looked like he slimmed down a lot and actually put on some muscle weight. Hopefully this is the case with the movie as the Hornet is at least an athletic guy, if not buffed out.

    by Mysterious_Volvo

    what the fuck is the point of adding the 'up'? What does the 'up' part in that refference? Does that mean his previous styles were 'down'? when he finished this movie, will he be 'changing down' his style? Why are styles on an axiom of up and down, and why does that intone that he will be choosing a better style for this obviouslt vapid fairly low budget studio action comedy? It doesnt make sense. Plus it sounds gay.

These movies are amusing, but they really aren't that good. It just seems to be a lot of shock humor and "loser-gets-lucky" stories, which just seems to have been done to death now.

    by parmenides

    If this movie is going to be good, they have to get Kato right. Chow would have been great, but Cho is the right age given Rogen et al. Now, I hear you saying "but Cho can't do Kung Fu!" Well, no, although he probably learned some moves to play Sulu (who is an arms expert). But -- how about an inept Kato who can't do hand-to-hand worth a damn and shoots people? I say yes.

    You know why geeks hate Seth Rogen?

    by MyManD316

    It's because he's mainstream, and anything mainstream is automatically canon fodder for the nerds/geeks/dweebs of the internet. They don't even bother to realize he's probably a far great geek then they are, only that that he had the where with all to make something of it. <p>So far, every comedy he's ever headlined or had a significant role in has been both critically received and made a shit load of money. And I'm willing to bet Green Hornet continues that trend.

  • March 24, 2009, 4:51 p.m. CST

    Plus, I don't get why people...

    I like Rogen

    by exie

    I think he's a generational comedy star that perfectly reflects a certain type that is prevalent today. It's why people respond to him. Everyone knows a "seth rogen type" in their lives and Seth seems to represent them all quite well. He's intelligent and funny. He's not Bill Murray, but who is. The one I don't understand is Jonah Hill. I think he's actually talentless. He has a very unlikable screen presence. If Seth Rogen was young enough to play Seth in Superbad, it would have been a much better movie with him in the role vs. Jonah. I'm sure Jonah is as funny a fuck as you will find when you're hanging out with him with a group of guys. His screen presence is awful. I'm glad a guy like Segal is getting his chance to step out. As for Seth, you may claim that you hate him and that's fine and all, but the guy is good at what he is doing. I think a lot of the reactions he garners in here are jealousy. Seth is way better at comedy than Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller. Be happy we have Seth instead of those two self centered morons in most comedies these days.

    Seth isn't even in the same league with Michael Keaton

    by Chuck_Chuckwalla

    How's he going to pull off playing a Superhero when he has none of the attributes. At least you could believe Michael Keaton would be angry and insane enough to put on a bat-suit. I'm sure the movie will be played for laughs but I'm not interested, I don't want another Hancock. Dark Knight and Watchmen elevated the superhero genre beyond the usual bullshit and now we get this piece of shit. Fuck superhero comedies.

    NO ORIGIN STORY - Just Start the Damn Movie

    by NivekJ

    Okay guys, have you ever picked up issue 37 of a comic book? Watched an episode of a show that you had never seen? Watch part 3 of a series without realizing it and it blew your mind? <p>There's a lot to be said for quality entertainment. I can hand someone an issue of Ex Machina or DMZ and not worry that they won't get it. Why? Because the characters are so strong and so interesting, that it doesn't matter how they ended up where they are. It doesn't even matter where they're headed. ALl that matters is who they are and what they'll do next. THAT'S story. <p>You know why people jumped head first into Star Wars? You know why people loved X-Files for as long as they did? DO you know why people love Raiders of the Lost Ark? Character. Character and story. <p> Mulder and Scully were interesting in every single episode of X-Files, mythology or stand-alone. Star Wars began in media res, which no movie ever really done except old Kurosawa flicks which assumed you knew your feudal Japan history. No catch-up session, no prequel comic, no blue pages, none of that shit. <p>Indiana Jones had an entire television series worth of character development that we didn't even know about, but just looking at the guy, you could tell he'd been around. <p>So, boo to the origin story. Boo to telling audiences about the birth of a character, and its world, when its least interesting aspect is its birth. So, no opening credits. Hell, while we're at it, no company logos! The first thing I want to see is Kato throwing a punch. <p>I want a charge in Tom Cruise's head. I want Superman to have a bloody nose. I want the Joker to pull off a bank heist. I want Riggs and Murtaugh in pursuit of South Africans and krugerrands, right off the bat. <p>Just start the damn movie.

    The non baggage of The Green Hornet...

    by JERRY HORROR

    Holy shit though! "The Science of Sleep" sucked ass, hard. I have never made it like at least a quarter of the way through the film. Luckily, Green Hornet carries no baggage like Superman or The Hulk. Mainly because even the tv series didn't do all that well. Other than launching Bruce Lee as Kato, the show sucked balls. Now, with this being said: AS A WRITER OR DIRECTOR, YOU CAN TAKE THE SPARSE SOURCE MATERIEL THAT "THE GREEN HORNET" IS........AND (dramatic inhale)... SHAPE THE FILM INTO WHATEVER YOU LIKE. Now the reason for the caps? Hopefully "Hollywood" insiders read this and we can collectively make them more money and get their asses laid. If you want the film to be campy, comedic, serious, brooding? Whatever you like. Michel Gondry might not be "the" GO TO GUY, to shape your "Hot new summer franchise,tent pole,cashcow" to milk dry for years to come. I mean, "WASN'T GET SMART AMAZING"?! THEY SHOULD GET PETER SEGAL, BECAUSE GET SMART WAS AMAZING! I BOUGHT A BLU-RAY PLAYER, JUST FOR "GET SMART". "GET SMART" WAS SO GOOD, WHAT A GOOD IDEA. WOW! Fuck it, I'm letting this shit rip. Seth Rogan's golden box-office touch shall be tested by Observe and Report. I'm sure it's better than "Paul Blart: Mall Cop", BUT, the masses will not flock to an HARD R comedy. I mean unless that Judd Apatow's (saw his name as an associate producer on tv's "The Critic" just last night) people aren't involved. Is it legal to make a comedy that does not involve either the former cast of "The State" or Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill and the dude who loves showing his dick. Look, Ain't it cool News needs a little bit of edge. I'm here, drop me a line. The rest of you whom can't wait....www.myspace.com/jerryhorror Oh and...I BOUGHT A BLU-RAY PLAYER AND A 15 SPEAKER ULTRA SHOCK SURROUND SOUND SYSTEM, (even though I'm collecting unemployment and haven't paid rent yet) JUST SO I COULD EXPERIENCE "THE SPIRIT" THE WAY WILL EIS....er, FRANK MILLER INTENDED IT TO BE.

    everything this jewish "gang" puts out! Everything and everyone that's associated w/ them. This site is vomit inducing when it comes to anything QT, Rodriguez, Del Toro, dude from Lord of Rings and JJ Star Trek guy. And recently Jude Apatow and co. Everything they do gets extensive coverage on this site. Hell, these jews can do no wrong in their eyes. I even heard one of the contributors compare Apatow to Johnny Hughes. If that doesn't show how they're being paid off and are sellouts to cash I don't know what will. John Hughes told stories of teenage life for real teenagers. Time after time. Nowadays, it's not the case w/ Apatow and his cronies. But back to Rogen: he's not funny nor appealing in the slightest. Good actor? Charismatic? Great timing? He's got none of those things. And to think he's the go to guy presently. It's like w/ those high schoool musical dopes. They have no talent either or the kids on the vampire movie that had every twelve yr old girl going apeshit since Titanic. None of those people have any range to speak of.

    Surely they could have made it work!

    by agnosticyesno

    Here are some ideas. I'm sure some competent writers could come up with something like this if not a hell of a lot better: They could have set the story back in the 4Os if they wanted to maintain the master and servant aspect. They could have then played with racism in the plot, perhaps having Britt Reid pretend he has racial prejudices to add to his cover. He could have lived in Hong Kong as a youth and was always surrounded by Asian servants, and continues to have them as servants in the U.S. But sees them only as that. In reality, however, while he was in Hong Kong he acquired a love and respect for Chinese culture and met his life long fiend Kato. Then have the Green Hornet and Kato work as equals.

    by Series7

    And I really don't I think he is funny and good at stupid one liners, is because of Knocked up. God what an unfunny movie, now I don't blame Seth for it sucked so bad I blame critics and movie folk for going gaga over him for that movie like he's never done anything before in his life. See I knew all about Freak and geeks and expected more from Knocked up. Just everyone went ON and ON about how funny it was. So I saw it and don't think I laughed, didn't really remember anything during it. It was like a lame rom com. But I liked Pineapple and Zach and Miri.

    Sometimes the devil fails....

    by Darth Macchio

    As in with Dustin Diamond, better known as Screech. As his prodigal son on Earth, Screech failed in his mission of pandemonium and chaos. He got all uppity and self-centered and thought the whole show was about him and not Luckyfur.<p>Now, ol' Luckyfur is at it again with a similar minion in the form of Seth Rogen. So all you fans and anti-fans be prepared, you've all been duped, and you've all been fooled. Seth Rogen is the anti-christ and he will eat your children and your dogs if you have any.<p>So sayeth the word.

    WAAH! WAAH!

    by SLY_STALLONES_COCK_VEIN

    I HATE SETH ROGEN! WAAH! WAAH! Get back in your basements you choads. Some of us like Rogen. If you dont like him, dont read articles about him you fucks.

  • March 25, 2009, 10:02 a.m. CST

    The thing is...

    by Darth Macchio

    it's not that big of a deal that some people like Rogen and some don't...what I find super awesome is how you get called a tosspot if you like or don't like him by those who like or don't like him. So, what you're saying is you're not really allowed your own opinion without getting someone else's opinion on your opinion. So basically, reality is high school. AWESOME!<p>And how many people told me...wait till you graduate and get out in the "real world". Hah! I knew it was all bullshit! The real world is high school! Political classes are just assholes in their smug little cliques pointing their grubby fingers in all directions except the one that counts.<p>Rogen is a hack because he wore fake tattoos in the virgin movies. He's a funny guy and a good comedy writer but anyone who wears fake tattoos is just a duck eating bastard. Guy probably pours glue on birds and eats Nerf. Anybody who likes Rogen probably also like to munch on their dog's ass while watching Rosie ODonnel give a blow job to a transsexual who isn't even there.

    by Chadley BeBay

    Seth Sucks and the only people who go around referring to shit as being like High School, are the people who think shit is like High School. I never give two shits about high-school, nor does it enter my mind as a behavioral description.

    by Don_Logan

    i just think you're all sheep, and will jump on any bandwagon that comes along in a talkback. fuck, even if i DIDN'T like rogen, i would give it serious consideration after reading what you angry little wizard-lovers have been posting.

    Don_Logan------- monkey business

    by dioxholster

    you said: "i like it in my ass." ---- now why would anyone admit to that? cheeez louizzzz <p> kidding aside, ur right about one thing, that all talkbackers are turd-throwers and that im afraid has become part of AICN culture. having said that, i think seth is way over hes head.

  • March 25, 2009, 1:18 p.m. CST

    hmmm

    by Don_Logan

    although i don't even understand where the first part of your comment came from, as for the second part: see, here's my thing. i enjoy debate. i enjoy reading other people's WELL THOUGHT OUT opinions, but, yes, lately it appears that "turd-throwing" (kudos) has become the way of the talkback. and once one monkey starts it, the whole cage is gonna join in!

    Seth is alright.

    by mrfan

    Don't hate or love him. His movies are alright. The only issue I have is his range of acting. He plays the same character in each movie.

    Damn fuckin straight i am the best thing on tv

    by Kenny_Fuckin_Powers

    Ever since Airwolf went off the air I'm the fuckin televisual messiah that America needs. But I expect to be hated and then revered once I have long passed onto the other side. For genius is not revered until it is gone. Just like big hairy bushes, now they are gone, i miss them. And never forget, you were all the chinks in my armor. Never forget. You are all my chinks!

    Did you just graduate then?

    by Darth Macchio

    Cause even though I was just making some stupid, there is no such thing as adulthood. A total myth. Perhaps you weren't paying attention since you say you didn't "give two shits" about HS.<p>But my point is that the longer I live, the more it looks like 95% of the people are children in adult bodies. They talk like adults but when I attempt to deduce the reasons for some of their more annoying behavior, the one thing that makes perfect sense is the petulance and narcissism of a child (except it's expected in children of course).<p>That said, I'm not a fan of Rogen (standing around and making the exact same face that's on the dvd cover does not constitute even comedic acting) but I find it funny that if I like him, people like you think I suck and if I don't like him, people like you think I suck. And yet you say this isn't high school. Have you even been on AICN long?

    "Rogen is a hack because he wore fake tattoos??"

    by DoctorWho?

    ...in a MOVIE?? <p> No. he would be a hack if he wore fake tattoos in real life. Movies are all about make believe.<p> At least give a respectable reason as to why you don't like him...that was just dumb.

  • March 25, 2009, 3:42 p.m. CST

    God damn! WHY so SERIOUS!

    by Darth Macchio

    Bzzzzzzz....hook line and sinker? Smell the smellin salts! PEANUTS. Come on mang! I'm not even tryin! It's like farting in an elevator around here today. Sitting ducks? Jee Eez! Unless of course people seek contention? That would be awesome!

    "Rogen is a hack because he wore fake tattoos"

    by Mullah Omar

    I agree, weirdest reason to hate a guy I've read in a while. <br> <br> There are plenty of REAL reasons to dismiss Seth Rogen. Yours is merely entertaining. You may as well have a vendetta against anyone named "Seth."

    It's called SARCASM for Christ's sake!!! As in I'm kidding?!! Heard of that? Facetiousness?<p>I know you don't know me personally and maybe haven't even read any of my other posts but even the context is so absurd as to be obvious to most anyone willing to think or willing to look past their righteous anger at anyone bothering not to acknowledge your opinionated superiority.<p>Doc, I know you're capable of more than just literal translations...I've seen your stuff in the political TB's and tho I don't always agree with you, you don't seem to be a moron. As for Omar, dude...2 posts above yours is my response to Doc about kidding. Reading comprehension much their boss?

    "chow is perfect for the part"????

    by cloudrider`

    yeah... decades after being the king of box office in all of asia. after shaolin soccer. after kungfu hustle. he's "perfect" for a sidekick in a stupid superhero movie? <p> he's TOO GOOD for such shit! fuck hollywood for treating overseas stars like garbage all the time. and chow should know better than to stoop this low. i know he thinks he's following in his hero's footstep. but he's already cemented his star status in moviedom. no need to pander to hollywood shit.

    seth rogen is such a lousy comic and bad actor it boggles my mind that he's now considered a bonafide star. and his skit on the oscar maybe the unfunniest thing i've seen on tv. pairing him up with CHOW? yeah, good thinking dumbass!!!
