Production

On June 4, 2008 Sony Pictures announced that, through their subsidiary Columbia Pictures, they are going ahead with plans for a feature film of the superhero. Set, they said, to be released on December 22, 2010[2], the film is to star Seth Rogen, who along with Evan Goldberg, will also take on writing duties.[3] Later, Sony Pictures announced that the Hong Kong action/comedy star Stephen Chow would direct the film as well as play the role of Kato.[4] However, due to creative differences, Chow was no longer going to direct.[5] Chow instead chose to direct a superhero spoof with Jack Black in the lead role[6]. Chow later left the role of Kato,[7] and was replaced by Taiwanese singer and actor Jay Chou.[8] It has been announced that Columbia Pictures had chosen Michel Gondry to direct the film.[9] [10] Nicolas Cage and Cameron Diaz were in talks to appear in the film as a villain and a reporter/love-interest, respectively.[11] While Cameron Diaz signed on, Nicolas Cage officially dropped out as the main villain, then Mr. X of the original radio series, as of September 8, 2009.[12] On September 14, it was announced that Austrian actor Christoph Waltz would play a villain named Chudnofsky.[13] On October 8, Anvil filmed a cameo performance in a rock club.[14] On November 11 and 12 (2009), several blocks of Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles were used for night-time location shooting of a car chase scene.
