Comic-Con #7: Sony ‘Green Hornet’ Panel

Luke Y Thompson is covering the Con for Deadline:

Seth Rogen comes out. “I’m sorry if you were expecting Ryan Reynolds” (who’s in Warner Bros’ Green Lantern.) Introduces footage that expands on the trailer we’ve seen, where Rogen plays a drunken newspaper heir whose father dies suddenly, and becomes a hero when his father’s Asian chauffeur Kato (Jay Chou, stepping in for Bruce Lee) turns out to be an expert in combat. New scenes include Kato removing a beer bottle cap in such a way that it flies like a bommerang… Rogen saying  that Kato’s autobiography should be called ‘Balls Deep In Shit-Kickin’ Dudes,’… Kato insisting on “no tights” … Rogen deciding his hero identity should be “the green bee,” which a room full of friends agree is lame (they prefer “hornet” though he still tries to put it to a vote and get “bee”)… Christoph Waltz yelling “Nothing green should survive the night!”… Rogen accidentally shooting himself with gas gun (next thing he knows, he’s out for 31 days)… This clip was not in 3-D.
