Funny guy Seth Rogen, director Michel Gondry and producer Neal Moritz were on hand after the Con closed to the public to unveil a car who’s shape and mysterious appearance had been enticing Comic-Con participants the whole preview night. Individuals who were manning the Sony booth kept watch over the covered vehicle as onlookers tried to sneak a peek.
With a flourish, the trio lifted the cover to reveal the car, above. The car, which Rogen will drive as the vigilante Green Hornet, is described here by Gondry as we stood around the gleaming vehicle with cameras shooting away in a tight space.
Rogen bounded around the weapons-laden cool car, taking pictures and admiring his ride. “Green Hornet,” like “The Spirit” and “The Phantom,” brings back a golden-age era hero. It hasn’t received the full-on publicity treatment yet, but its presence, and that of Rogen himself, could signal that the film’s creators and stars are revving up those engines, so to speak.
