Nic Cage to Play Green Hornet Nemesis?

Variety is reporting that Columbia Pictures is in early talks with Cage to play the gangster foil to the Green Hornet.

As well, Cameron Diaz is negotiating to play a reporter and love interest in the Michel Gondry-directed film that stars Seth Rogen as the masked crime fighter.

This casting news comes less than a week after Stephen Chow, who was going to play Hornet’s sidekick Kato, had to back out. The film is moving full-speed ahead with a fall start date for the production.

Rogen and Evan Goldberg, of Superbad and Pineapple Express previously, wrote the script and Neal Moritz is producing through his Original Films banner.
