One of the most anticipated movies coming early next year is The Green Hornet, starring funnyman Seth Rogen in his first-ever role as a superhero, with Jay Chou, Cameron Diaz, and Christopher Waltz in supporting roles.
Based upon the original ABC series, the 3-D film centers on Britt Reid, the son of a rich newspaper magnate, who finds his life turned around after meeting one of the employees of his media empire, Kato (Chou). Using the tried-and-true recipe of “bad boy makes good,” the two, with the assistance of Reid’s beautiful secretary Lenore (Diaz), debut as crimefighters taking on the underworld kingpin Chudnofsky (Waltz).
One can arguably suggest that the biggest unknown star of this action flick is The Black Beauty, a highly modified Chrysler Imperial Crown, which was one of the most luxurious (and largest) American cars of the mid-sixties. Here’s a video showing the construction of and attributes of this super car.
