Seth Rogen finds the $120 million budget for his upcoming film The Green Hornet “insane”. Rogen who has been part of low-budget films, mainly in the comic genre is quite overwhelmed by this new exorbitant budget with which he worked for the film.
As he is not only acting but also producing the film, the task he had to look after even the minute details were at times difficult for the guy to “wrap” his brain around them.
The actor / producer also told that there were many complicated action sequences going on with multiple cameras with blue screens on, only made filming difficult and the amount in the budget added to his stress. Rogen even stated that The Green Hornet is the most complex film he has worked on till date and realized how much goes into a movie of this size.
On another note, Seth said that the reason The Green Hornet attracted him is because he realized that one unique and rare thing about this superhero story is that the “sidekick” is more famous than the actual hero. Rogen goes on to say that everyone knows of Bruce Lee playing the role of ‘Kato’ but rarely people know the main character.
So in a way, the word “sidekick” is kind of demeaning this film will give some reverence back to the “sidekicks”. The Green Hornet will release on January 14 and will also have Cameron Diaz in it and Jay Chou will play Kato and Seth is The Green Hornet.
