Christoph Waltz in Talks for Green Hornet

The latest news in the long-in-development Green Hornet project is that actor Christoph Waltz is in talks to star as the film's antagonist. Waltz has been propelled into stardom recently after appearing in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds as the villianous Hans Landa, and it's no surprise that offers like these are coming his way. In the two times I've seen IB, he has been the standout performance each time. An Oscar nomination could easily be in his future. But, while I'm excited at the prospect of watching Waltz in more films, I'd hate to see him typecast in badguy roles as he seems extremely versatile. Still, this project is shaping up to be one to watch out for considering the talent involved. With Michael Gondry directing, Seth Rogen starring and writing, and the potential involvement of Christoph Waltz, the combination could be well worth the wait until Dec. 2010.
