Green Hornet pushed back to December 2010

While it would appear that the latest news about The Green Hornet - that it's been shoved back from a July to a December release next year - is yet another bad omen, that's not how Seth Rogen feels.

While the movie is definitely being pushed back on Sony's schedule, it's been widely assumed that the move is to give the filmmakers - including director Michel Gondry - more time to get the thing finished in post-production.

Especially since it has yet to start shooting.

Talking to HitFix, producer/writer/star Seth Rogen has gone on record to explain. "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."

So there you have it, folks - straight from the stoner horse's mouth.

Now we just want this thing to be in production so everyone can stop worrying...
