  Gondry to Direct Rogen’s Green Hornet?
Posted by: Mike on Feb 24th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

It looks like Michel Gondry is back in control of the directorial reigns for The Green Hornet, still starring Seth Rogen and Stephen Chow.

The Hollywood Reporter reports

Stephen Chow had been tapped to direct but dropped out over creative differences. He is still expected to co-star as Kato, the Hornet’s trusty sidekick and chauffeur.

Since Chow’s departure, the project has been the subject of speculation that it was sliding into development hell, but the studio is intent on making the feature one of its 2010 tentpoles.

The choice of Gondry, the helmer behind off-the-beaten-path films such as “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “The Science of Sleep” and “Be Kind Rewind,” signals that the creative direction the studio and the film’s producer, Neal Moritz, are trying to take the project is one not usually associated with the usual crime-fighter movie.

Looks like the movie will move forward. After seeing Seth Rogen at the Oscars the other night, it’s pretty evident that he’s lost a lot of weight and really got in shape in anticipation for this film role.  I, for one, hope it gets made, and gets made well.

It looks a lot like Paul Blart: Mall Cop, but more vulgar, funnier, and with Seth Rogen. That’s a sure fire win right there.

Warning, this is red band. 17+ only, unless your mom says it’s okay.




  The Green Hornet not Dead – says Rogen
Posted by: Mike on Jan 28th, 2009 Leave a Comment »

Seth Rogen responded to claims that The Green Hornet had run out of money, and the studio had run out of patience.

Rogen says

The Green Hornet’ has many people working for it, including production designers, costume designers and many conceptual artists, office staff, etc.,” he said during our e-mail exchange back and forth. “[The studio heads] have every intention on making it, and assuming we’re able to hire a new director in the upcoming weeks, which seems like a distinct possibilty, it should still hit the release date.

Personally, without having read the scripts, I’m betting I would have liked Kevin Smith’s Green Hornet movie better, but that’s just me.

From the good folks that are kind enough to pay for Kevin Smith’s next file, Zack And Miri Make A Porno, we’ve got nine screen caps from the upcoming flick, which has been called the “funniest movie of “2008” already.  I’m sold, I’ll be there opening weekend.

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty psyched about this flick, and can’t wait to laugh my ass off on Halloween.




  Katherine Heigl – Drawn Together
Posted by: Mike on Sep 16th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

All I can think of is the cartoon on Comedy Central, but that’s just me.

Katherine Heigl’s production company, in association with Fox 2000, have hired writers Keith Merryman and David A. Newman to work on the script for an “action-comedy” (??) for Heigl, called Drawn Together.

Details aren’t available yet as to what the movie’s about. But, it’s Katherine Heigl, so it’ll probably be disappointing, and boring. Unless Seth Rogen shows up.




  Zack and Miri Rated R

Kevin Smith Wins R Rating

Kevin Smith Wins R Rating

Shortly after Seth Rogen spoke out about the MPAA being hypocritical by giving Zack and Miri Make a Porno an NC-17 rating, news has arrived that Kevin Smith was able to cut only 12 seconds and get his R rating.

The Associated Press reports that Smith won the appeal after presenting his case to the MPAA’s Appeals Board. I think Smith hit the nail on the head in this quote:

They felt it was rather sexually graphic. My point is, it was comically graphic. All the sex in the movie with the exception of one scene is very cartoonish, very campy. It wasn’t designed to titillate.

Whether the MPAA takes into consideration the intentions of certain objectionable scenes is unclear. In fact, most of what the MPAA does is unclear to the general public. However, Smith’s point is that the scene wasn’t meant to be pornographic (despite the title), but rather was designed to be laughed at.

This is a victory for Kevin Smith since everyone knows making an NC-17 film is “commercial suicide,” as he put it.

Check out Zack and Miri Make A Porno starring Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks in theaters October 31st.




  Zack and Miri Make a Porno Teaser

UPDATE: The trailer had to be pulled. See the explanation here.
Straight from Kevin Smith comes the extremely dirty teaser for Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Kevin Smith emphasizes that this is not a trailer, as it contains no footage from the movie. Again, I have to say this is a very dirty teaser and extremely not safe for work. You’ve been warned.

Zack and Miri Make a Porno stars Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks and is set for release on Halloween 2008.
