‘Green Hornet’ Delayed for 3D Conversion


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. 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.

    Well as one that is not an original fan of the comic because I never read ‘The Green Hornet’ I will just comment on the 3D Conversion. ‘Clash of the Titans’ was filmed in 2D and then after the major success of AVATAR they decided to convert it. I didnt know how this would look… the end result is that the 3D added little or nothing to the movie and it wasnt that prevolent anyways. SO 3D conversions should stop and if you want a 3D movie, then film it in 3D already!

    yea i am not a big fan of green hornet i seen some of the old tv show there was on the character. i hope this film does turn out to be a decent adaption to the character. As for seth rogen as the hornet i know he wasnt the ideal choice but i think he could probably do well. But as for the 3d conversion, i am starting to get sick of all films pretty much heading that way. Hopefully it will look good though.

    I don’t know! I loved the Green Hornet (with Bruce Lee as Kato) actually I loved Kato. Guess I’ll wait and see. Not feeling it though!

    Gadzooks! Sony is really surprised that Michel Gondry made a weird, unconventional superhero movie?! Were they born yesterday?
