The “Green Hornet” movie starring Seth Rogen, Cameron Diaz, Edward Furlong and Christoph Waltz, has experienced its share of speed bumps from the get-go. Instead of discussing all these trials it has encountered over the last year since its announcement, lets just go over the latest “bumps” it has had.
The first one comes from IESB, where they are reporting some bad news: What we’re hearing is the Sony executives are displeased with the results. The tone is too campy, they’re not happy with the work from director Michel Gondry and Seth Rogen does not look the part. At all. In fact, the feeling at Sony is the movie is a disaster.
However, Sony spokesperson Steve Elzer responded by calling the IESB story “complete garbage.”
Elzer, who stated studio executives had seen only one third of the movie, added, “What we have seen is outstanding. The piece is unfounded.”
However, all of that only serves to make the most recent news sound even more thought-provokingly curious.
Deadline.com is reporting that “Green Hornet” is moving its release date from Dec. 22 to Martin Luther King Weekend (Jan. 14, 2011) so it can be converted into 3D.
Yes, that is three weeks from its original release date. Question: Will they really be using these extra three weeks to finish converting it to 3D? Or are they buying some extra time to fix all the hiccups that the movie seems to be experiencing? Could this be a stunt to use 3D as a distraction from a poorly slapped together movie?
I am still hopeful that they can whip this movie into shape so it can find its footing and be fun and entertaining. What do you think? Would love to hear your feedback.
