Nic Cage in talks for ‘Green Hornet’

Cameron Diaz negotiating for love interest role

Columbia Pictures is in early talks with Nicolas Cage to play the gangster villain in “The Green Hornet.”

Cameron Diaz is negotiating to play a reporter and love interest in the Michel Gondry-directed pic that stars Seth Rogen as the masked crime fighter.

The picture is moving full steam ahead for a fall start date, even as the studio looks to replace Stephen Chow, who was going to play sidekick Kato. Rogen and Evan Goldberg wrote the script and Neal Moritz is producing through his Original Films banner.

The picture is set for release next summer.

Cage just completed “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” and remake “The Bad Lieutenant.” Diaz is booked to star with Tom Cruise in the untitled James Mangold-directed action comedy that had formerly been titled “Wichita,” for 20th Century Fox.
