Despite previous reports, The Green Hornet movie is not dead. Hitfix’s Motion Captured has retracted previous statements declaring the death of the film, citing difficulties for Seth Rogen as the film searched for a new director.

Instead, with new director Michel Gondry, and stars such as Cameron Diaz and Nicholas Cage signed on, The Green Hornet looks to be in even better shape than before. Rogen, however, has no plans to rush the project, opting to move the release date to Christmas of next year.

When asked, Rogen explained:

“We’re both relieved and psyched about the change. It gives more time for post, which would have been immensely rushed if we were to come out in the summer. It also affords us more time to promote the film, (now we can go to Comic-Con with more than a car!) and ultimately is a great vote of confidence from the studio. We got the same date that movies like ‘I Am Legend’ and ‘Avatar’ are getting, so we’re thrilled to be there.” [via Hitfix]

It’s certainly refreshing to see that Seth Rogen is not interested in rushing a project just to try to meet a summer release. I’m sure that film buffs everywhere are applauding his decision. Too often we see movies rushed out to try to catch a certain season, but personally I’d rather see a quality product. I can’t wait to see what they manage to produce with the extra time.
