"I'm in" Cameron Diaz recently told MTV when asked about her involvement in the Seth Rogen and Michel Gondry " Green Hornet" film, currently in development. Diaz has officially squashed the rumors and confirmed that she will be playing the role of Lenore "Casey" Case who is traditionally Britt Reid's (played by Rogen,) secretary and one of the few characters that are aware of the crime-fighting Reid partakes during his after hours. However, it seems that the interpretation of Casy's character will be considerably different from "Casey's" traditional character role. In Gondry's interpretation, "Casey" will be a divorcee and amateur detective who is unaware of Green Hornet's identity.
The interpretation of her character hints that the film will be very different from its historical incarnation, and that her character as well as the entire film will be modernized.
“I think she’ll have her own little [differences],” explained the “Charlie’s Angels” series star. “I’m going with Michel, because this is Michel’s movie and Seth’s movie. So, I’m playing the character that they wrote for us.”
I suppose this answers a lot of questions about what we can expect for the upcoming "Green Hornet" film; however, I continue to remain skeptical about Seth Rogen's ability to play an action role. What do you think? Are you looking forward to seeing Cameron Diaz play opposite Rogen's character on the big screen?
