According to the Hollywood Reporter blog, Heat Vision, actor Nicolas Cage has dropped out from playing the villain in the upcoming Seth Rogen-helmed super hero flick, “The Green Hornet.”
Heat Vision reports that Cage was unable to come to terms with Columbia that both he and the studio could agree on, so the actor walked away from the deal. Columbia is already actively hunting for a replacement, according to the report, though no word has been given on whether they’re aiming for another Hollywood A-list actor for the role.
While principle shooting has begun on the movie in the last week, it has all involved stars Rogen, Cameron Diaz and Jay Chou. None of it has involved Cage or the character that he was slated to portray.
