A look back at the Green Hornet.

Seth Rogen as the Green Hornet

Recently there has been a whole slew of photographs from the set of Seth Rogen’s Green Hornet film, and I have to say they look great.

Before Seth Rogen, and even before Bruce Lee, the Green Hornet was a long running radio serial.  Starting out as a cousin to the Lone Ranger, the character was created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker in the 1930s.

I was originally introduced to the character during an episode of Adam West’s Batman when I was a kid.  Van Williams and Bruce Lee’s version of the character was on the show and I don’t really remember what ended up happening but Batman and Robin did fight Bruce Lee and Van Williams, and I think its pretty clear that Bruce Lee kicked Burt Ward’s ass.  I don’t really remember, but yeah.

YouTube has it:

Regardless, the Flickcast has more photos from the set. Featuring Rogen and Jay Chou as his sidekick Kato, and directed by visionary director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind).
