Breakin’ News: Christoph Waltz Cast In ‘Green Hornet’

MV5BNjA3NzQ5MTk0OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNzI0OTY3Mg@@._V1._SX600_SY400_According to Deadline Hollywood, Christoph Waltz, now famous for his turn as the “Jew hunter” in “Inglourious Basterds,” has been cast in “Hornet” as the villain.

As you might have heard, Nic Cage had been in talks to play the film’s villain but talks fell through last week.

With this news, it seems that director Michael Gondry has adequately replaced Cage, and to many, upgraded. Nothing against Cage, but Waltz was absolutely spellbinding in Quentin Tarantino’s “Basterds,” a role Waltz is likely to get an Oscar nomination for to go along with his Best Actor nomination at Cannes earlier this year.

Filming is already in progress with a planned release date of December 2010.
