Yet another setback for Seth Rogen's The Green Hornet!
Nicolas Cage, who was in talks to play the villain Mr. X in the film, has bailed on the project. It's being reported that there was a conflict with the studio bosses about his deal.
Director Stephen Chow left the film as well earlier this year, but was quickly replaced by Michel Gondry.
This doesn't sound good, Seth!
It's not known yet whether or not Cage's leaving will affect the production schedule.
It was recently announced that the Green Hornet release date was pushed back and will be hitting theaters in December 2010.
