The Green HornetI loved The Green Hornet when I was a kid. I remember seeing Van Williams and Bruce Lee on Batman (one of those crossover episodes to get people excited) and liking them even a bit more than Batman and Robin. Batman was just kinda weird, and Robin's tights were stupid. The Green Hornet had a cool mask, a great car, a cool gun, and a karate expert bodyguard/sidekick. The Green Hornet only lasted one season though. Maybe it didn't have the pedigree and colorful villains that Batman had.

A big screen movie has been talked about for years. At one point, George Clooney was talked about for the role of Britt Reid/The Green Hornet. All of those productions never got past the talking stage, but when Seth Rogen became popular and he and Evan Goldberg got involved, Sony put the movie into gear. But now rumors are swirling that they might not want it after all. They need a new director (Stephen Chow left last month), and several sources say that Sony isn't high on the film anymore. The film is still slated for a June, 2010 release date.

It would be unfortunate if Rogen lost all of that weight for nothing. But I guess there's the whole "healthy" aspect.
