The pressure’s too much! Cage is out of Green Hornet!

Posted on 09 September 2009 by ShepRamsey

Yesterday in my article about the ever-expanding filmography of the great Nicolas Cage, I failed to mention his involving in The Green Hornet, which just started shooting. 

Cage, who has a lot on his plate right now, was niccagehairset to play the villain in the Seth Rogen-starring action flick, but now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, he’s gone and dropped out. 

Apparently, Cage and the studio weren’t able to “come to terms on a deal,” which obviously means that the dude thought he was worth a little more than Sony did. 

Lucky for the film, Cage hadn’t yet shot any scenes, but I’m guessing that they’ll want to work quickly to find a replacement.

This isn’t the first time this movie has had a casting issue–a few months back, Chinese director/actor Stephen Chow (who was also slated to direct the flick at one time) was set to play Kato, but then dropped out and was replaced by Jay Chou.
