Breakin’ News: Nic Cage Passes On ‘Green Hornet’, Still Busy As A Bee

Well, according to THR.com, Nic Cage, who was only in talks to play in “The Green Hornet”, is going to use his various bad hair styles in other flicks. This means that Michael Gondry is in search for a new villain, as Cage was rumored to be fillin’ that role but couldn’t come to an agreement with the studio. While this hurts, I am more than positive that an adequate replacement will be found. Gondry is an excellent director and this film just started shooting so it is primed and ready for someone to hop right in. No early speculation at all for who might take Cage’s place.

Meanwhile, it seems that the upcoming 3D pic “Drive Angry” won’t be the only project Cage is working on. According to THR’s new Heat Vision blog, Cage has signed on to star in director Roger Donaldson’s “The Hungry Rabbit Jumps,” a thriller described as, “center[ing] on a man whose wife is the victim of a brutal crime. He subsequently becomes entangled with an underground vigilante organization.”

Cage has already finished these films set for release within the year: “Astro Boy” (2009), “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” (2009), “Kick-Ass” (2010), “Season of the Witch” (2010), and “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” (2010).
