Columbia Pictures is in early negotiations with Nicolas Cage to star as the gangster villain in "The Green Hornet."
Cameron Diaz is also negotiating to play a reporter and love interest.
Seth Rogen is attached to star as the masked crime fighter and Michel Gondry is set to direct from a script co-written by Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
There's still no word on who will play Kato after Stephen Chow left the project last week.
Apparently, this "Green Hornet" is going to stick to the radio roots of the material. If that's the case, is Cage going to play the mysterious "Mr. X," a criminal mastermind introduced in the episode "Walkout for Profit?" (Wikipedia)
And is Diaz going to play "Clicker" Binny, a female photographer for the fictional newspaper The Sentinel?
We'll soon find out, but for now, the film is still on track to shoot in the fall with a summer 2010 release date.
