Columbia Pictures has released the first two production stills from The Green Hornet, featuring Seth Rogen and Jay Chou. The Michel Gondry-directed adaptation of the classic comic book also stars Cameron Diaz, Edward James Olmos, Tom Wilkinson and Christoph Waltz.
In the film, Britt Reid (Rogen) is a rich, spoiled playboy who has been happy to maintain a direction-less existence. When his father James Reid (Wilkinson) mysteriously dies, Britt meets an impressive and resourceful company employee, Kato (Chou). Realizing that they have the resources to do something worthwhile with their lives and finally step out of James Reid's shadow, Kato builds the ultimate weapon, The Black Beauty, an indestructible car with every weapon and gadget imaginable and Britt decides that in order to be heroes, they will pose as villains.
With the help of Britt's new secretary, Lenore Case (Diaz), they learn that the chief criminal in the city is named Benjamin Chudnofsky (Waltz). He has united all the gangs under his power, and he quickly sees that the Green Hornet is a direct threat to the prosperous criminal underworld he controls.
The new stills definitely look interesting, and Rogen looks surprisingly un-gooberish as Britt Ried, and downright dashing with the Green Hornet mask on. Check out the photos below and stay tuned for the film's trailer, coming soon!
