Nick Cage Will Not Menace THE GREEN HORNET!!

Published at: Sept. 9, 2009, 1:26 a.m. CST

I am – Hercules!! The Hollywood Reporter says Nicolas Cage has decided not to take the villain role opposite Seth Rogen in “The Green Hornet.” The Michel Gondry-helmed adventure, which began shooting last week, is now on the lookout for a new actor Rogen can beat on. Knowing nothing of the Hornet’s nemesis, have we any clue who would make a worthwhile substitute? Christoph Waltz? Jonah Hill? What’s Terrence Stamp doing at the moment? Maybe Rogen will rope in one of the “Freaks and Geeks” co-stars he hasn’t yet worked with on the big screen, like “Inglourious Basterds” vet Samm Levine or “Bones” player John Francis Daley. Maybe not! Find all of the Reporter’s story on the matter here.

    Cage only pulled out,as he wanted too much money

    by Wayne6000

    It would've been cool to have seen Cage do it, but if you read the HR article, it's obvious he wanted too much money for his payment. The film doesn't really need an expensive A list actor wanting a 8 figure payment for the villain, as they can hire someone cheaper.

    Why does anyone care about Green Hornet anyway?

    by Chuck_Chuckwalla

    He had an immensely popular radio program a thousand years ago but most of the people who actually listened to it are dead or are going to be real soon. He had a show that lasted one season in the sixties that I've never seen rerun in syndication. He's appeared intermittently in badly done comic books over the years put out by obscure comic book publishers. The only real reason the concept has any allure is not because of the main character — it's because of his SIDEKICK played by none other than the great Bruce Lee in that short-lived series. No wonder Cage left the project, he can smell shit when he steps in it.

    Well I like The Green Hornet

    by LastOfTheV8Interceptors

    There I said it. I like the premise of posing as a high-profile criminal in order to catch high-profile criminals. He's a pulpy/underworld/crimebuster character, but I think people that hate the idea are applying modern superhero sensibilities to The Hornet. However, this poor movie looks like it's destined to be another "La Mancha". My gut reaction was to bitch about Rogen being cast but I made that same mistake with Keaton and Batman a long time ago. Therefore, I was gonna wait for a trailer or something before I fired up the bitchworks. I don't really care about Cage leaving. I would like to see more of an old school mob 'heavy' as the nemesis anyway. But.. I think this production was in deep shit well before that. All the problems with casting and negative reaction are gonna kill it in spite of Gondry being attached. Oh well.. maybe someday they'll get it right.

    District 9 Needs A Prequel, IMO

    by Crow3711

    Because if any fanboys took a step back from the amazing eyeball fuckery that film provided, you might realize it makes no god damn sense at all. They need to explain at least some of that retarded shit. Why did the aliens just stop over our city, and yet make no attempt to do anything but starve to death inside? Why is that the liquid they use for fuel also has the amazingly convenient property of actually altering your DNA to turn you into an alien (the biggest, stupidest part of the whole movie, that makes zero sense, other than for someone to say, "its alien goo, man. OBVIOUSLY it messes with your DNA!" NO.) Why did they need to collect a tiny bit of fuel to get back to the mothership, and yet the mothership requires no fuel or maintenance of any kind, it just takes off, no problem at all. Why didnt anyone else try to leave? Why did the aliens decided it was better to let us take giant shits on their chests and treat them like dirt instead of actually...I don't know...using their ridiculously overpowered qweapons, instead of trading them in for fucking CAT FOOD!?! These things are capabale of interstellar travel, and I'm supposed to believe that becacuse of one line that says "their leaders all died," everything single other one who too depressed to even defend itself? Fuck that. That's just piss-poor writing. The more I think about that movie the more it pisses me off. It was fucking amazing ot watch, but my brain kept going, wait? what the fuck? this makes as much sense as goddamn transformers! And yet, of course, because it was fanboy jerkoffable, you all choose to ignore these insanely large plot holes because..well..your fanboys, and youll hate transformers for something youll love another film for, all because of who directed it. District 9 makes no sense at all. Maybe a sequel will actually get me to udnerstand how in the fact humans learned to understand their langauge so fluently and vice verse, especially considering none of the aliens care about anything enough to not live in actual filth. I highly doubt they offered translation seminars. Fucking stupid.. <p> Rant over. Apologies.

This is a cash-in attempt on boomers that remember Bruce Lee, the only good part of the original.

    by Ninja Nerd

    I can't believe Seth Rogen, who I actually like a lot as an actor, ever saw a single episode of Green Hornet. Based on what I've read so far, this seems to a cluster fuck like "Bewitched" and "Land Of The Lost" were. Maybe it will be decent, but I seriously doubt it. GH should have been done with a tone closer to The Dark Knight, not Pineapple Express.

    by maxbz

    Considering that it's not the subject matter or the genre of the film that makes it good, but how it's made that decides it's quality; and considering that "Stoner Jew" has done good to great films pretty much without exception, I'm sure this film will be great. You guys will probably hate it because--oh that's right--you hate everything, but that doesn't mean it will be anything less than fantastic. It might not be what one expects, but that's a good thing when it comes to making art.

    The whole fluid thing was kinda self explanitory, it sprayed Wickus in the face,he changed. Who cares why it does that. Nitpicks are pointless.

    by spiceybiscuit

    McLovin for GH villain!!!

    by dihay

    or how 'bout a group of villains called the Realities. Then you could have New York, Jon & Kate, some of them there short fellers and a Real Worlder or 2 battle it out with Rogan. Oh, if it weren't but a dream...

    Adaptation. But Cage gave interviews in which this was the only movie he followed 100% the director, instead of following his acting instincts. Maybe they should hire Werner Herzog to direct him with a weapon, like he did with Kinski.

    Well there was that movie he won an Academy Award for, Leaving Las Vegas. And he was phenominal in Raising Arizona and vampire's Kiss. he used to be a HIGHLY regarded actor. I don't know what happened but his acareer went right in the shitter aside from the National Treasure movies of course.

  • Sept. 9, 2009, 4:15 p.m. CST

    Yes, Adaptation.

    by REVENGE_of_FETT

    LOVE that movie.

    Yiou want to know what happened to Nic Cage? Jerry Bruckheimer happened, and turned what was once a respected actor into an action hero baffon. And Cage accepted, for the sake of lots of millions of dollars... which he later squandered and is now owning to the IRS.

    Adaptation

    by AsimovLives

    Made me want to believe that there was still some of the old Cage magic somewhere in him. And in that movie he's brillant. Of course, he had to fuck it all up afterwards. I tell you guys, i'm only watching Bad Lieutenent not because of Cage but because of Werner Herzog. Cage is pratically incidental.

    Herzog directing Cage, that would last about 5 minutes. And I remember you mentioning to be from Portugal. Unfortunally I was born in Brazil, I have since renounced citizenship to that shitty mess of a country. I'd seriously wipe my ass in thay country's flag anytime. Not Portugal's, though. That place's pretty neat.

  • Sept. 9, 2009, 4:21 p.m. CST

    HOLY SHIT there WILL be a Herzog/Cage film!

    by ricarleite2

    That is like Hitchcock directing Adam Sandler!

    A close shave for Rogan!

    by cookylamoo

    Ask David Caruso what it's like to have Cage act you off the screen.

    Did they kill the car?

    I read something somewhere earlier that made it sound like they crashed it. If I could remember where I'd tell ya.

    Oh yeah TMZ

    by CherryValance

    that's it, sorry for not reading through, Zardoz. I really enjoyed your movie namesake btw. *waves*

  • Sept. 9, 2009, 7:50 p.m. CST

    Would it have made a difference if Cage was in this mess???

    by Violator90

    I doubt that ANY one can save this steaming pile of shit. As long as Seth "sweating over a a dounut" Rogan is the hero of this movie, there is no hope.

    I'm sorry you feel that way about your native country. You must have one terrible experience i can't even imagine for you to feel that way. i guess you didn't had the good fortune to be born a german-brazilian and live in their cities, or living in Petropolis, i guess.<br><br>Do you still know how to speak in the mother language?<br><br>As for Herzog, not only ther eis one movie with Nic Cage, there will also be another herzog movie produced by David Lynch. Think about this, this year there will be TWO Herzog movies. And considering that it was this year thati saw Encounters At The End Of The World, this means i will get to watch THREE Herzog movies this year. That's cinema nirvana!

    Matt Damon or Ben Affleck

    by liljuniorbrown

    I'm in the lone camp of Nic Cage fans, even though Ghost Rider was a fucking mess and I wouldn't watch Bangkok Dangerous on a 19 hour flight. I'll always have a soft spot for his over the top antics in Face/Off and of course Raising Arizona is classic.

    I am boarding this schadenfreude train!

    by Homer Sexual

    Hell Yes! Cage pulled out! Seriously, are they really going to continue throwing money away (in other words, keep filming?) <p> Not only is Green Hornet a terrible idea to begin with, I think the tide of public opinion is turning against Rogen. I think he's got the JLo overexposure, believeing his own hype backlash going on.

  • Sept. 10, 2009, 5:45 p.m. CST

    remind again..

    by redkamel

    why is seth rogen in this film? are they going to ruin it like they did with starsky and hutch?

  • Sept. 10, 2009, 5:47 p.m. CST

    No need for Plan 9 remake

    by captzeep

    as the Green Hornet with Seth Rogen will now be the worst movie ever made. I mean seriously, WTF?
