GREEN HORNET Won't Get a Sequel

Bad news for Seth Rogen as the film's producer Neal Moritz has recently told The Hollywood Reporter that he has no plans for a sequel to 2011's The Green Hornet.

Synopsis: Britt Reid (Seth Rogen) is a slacker by day, party animal by night... until he finds a serious career that's seriously cool: crime-fighting action hero. As the Green Hornet, he teams up with gadget wiz and martial arts master Kato (Jay Chou) to take down LA's underworld.



While promoting 21 Jump Street Hollywood film producer Neal Moritz explained why The Green Hornet will not have a sequel. He stressed that the film was well liked, (which I don't agree with), but said other factors lead him to nix the chances of a sequel.

THR: Is The Green Hornet an example of a movie that wasn't liked enough to warrant a sequel?

Moritz: The problem wasn't that. The movie did almost $250 million and was actually very well liked, but we made the movie for too much money. One, we made it in L.A. for certain reasons, and two, we decided to go to 3D -- that added another $10 million. If I had done it in a tax-rebate state and not done 3D, it would have been considered a huge financial success for the studio. So we're not making a sequel right now.






The Green Hornet Starred Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, and directed by Michel Gondry. The film also starred Cameron Diaz, Christoph Waltz, Edward James Olmos, David Harbour, and Tom Wilkinson.
