    "It Was A Fucking Nightmare": Seth Rogen Speaks Candidly About The Failure Of 'The Green Hornet'

And so, reflections on the franchise that wasn't, "The Green Hornet," continue to roll. You might recall the producer Neal Moritz said...

    Cannes: Michel Gondry Discusses 'The Green Hornet' & Admits "Fans Didn't Like My Vision Of The Superhero"
