Seth Rogen Not Bothered By Nerds Whining About His Green Hornet

Hopes to make something "not like any superhero movie."

If you greeted the news of Seth Rogen starring in a new Green Hornet movie less than enthusiastically, you were not alone — something Rogen is aware of, and to his credit, not terribly concerned about.

Speaking with MTV Movies, Rogen sums up the online response to his plans for Green Hornet as follows:

“[The fan reaction] was a little surprising. I love the idea! I think it’s going to be a unique and interesting movie,” the jocular always-self-deprecating Rogen announced, before adding with a laugh, “but nerds love complaining. You go on Ain’t It Cool News, and everybody complains about everything. They could find out Jesus Christ was making a movie with Frank Miller, and they’d say, ‘That’s a terrible combination!’ “

Describing his Hornet vision as “not like any superhero movie…more like a regular action movie,” Rogen says that he and co-writer Evan Goldberg have prepared two outlines for the film — one comedic, the other less so — but admits that “it’s really hard to wrap our head around the movie until we’ve written the script,” something that will have to wait until the writers’ strike is resolved.

And what about the idea that Rogen and Goldberg shouldn’t be trying to write an action movie at all? Again, Rogen understands the skepticism, but tells MTV that fans should wait until they see his next movie, The Pineapple Express, described in the article as “a high-octane action/comedy.”
