Question marks in the headline can mean only one thing: it’s time to prognosticate! This story may not be true, so we’re free to speculate wildly! Yee haw! Now who wants to get shot in the dark?

Rumor patrol here, folks. Today’s possibly true news from an unnamed source comes from IESB, who say Sony execs are not pleased with the Seth Rogen-scripted, Michel Gondry-directed comedic take on The Green Hornet.
What we’re hearing is the Sony executives are displeased with the results. The tone is too campy [A campy Green Hornet movie? The dastard!], they’re not happy with the work from director Michel Gondry and Seth Rogen does not look the part. At all. In fact, the feeling at Sony is the movie is a disaster.
Wait, Seth Rogen doesn’t look the part of a super hero? If only they somehow could’ve seen this coming… Look, I know Michel Gondry’s movies since Eternal Sunshine haven’t been amazing, but the man painted me a tranny with a bottle in its butt for $20. Where I’m from, that counts for something. And keep in mind, these Sony execs who supposedly think the Green Hornet film is a disaster, they’re presumably the same people who thought Bounty Hunter and Did You Hear About the Morgans? looked like feel-good thrill rides.
