The Green Hornet Begins

Production begins on Rogen’s Green Hornet!

Filming has begun on The Green Hornet, it has emerged.

Earlier this week it was reported that the release of the superhero movie has been pushed back, prompting writer/actor Seth Rogen to express his relief that the project would not be rushed into a July 2010 opening.

The studio behind the film – Columbia Pictures – has now revealed that the film has now gone before cameras in Los Angeles, although it will stick to its December release.

Cameron Diaz, Edward James Olmos, Tom Wilkinson and Jay Chou will all join Rogen in the cast with Nicolas Cage in negotiations to portray the masked vigilante’s nemesis.
