Producer Neal Moritz tells The Hollywood Reporter that plans for a sequel to last year’s “The Green Hornet” are essentially dead. The reason? The expense.
“The movie did almost $250 million and was actually very well liked, but we made the movie for too much money. One, we made it in L.A. for certain reasons, and two, we decided to go to 3D — that added another $10 million. If I had done it in a tax-rebate state and not done 3D, it would have been considered a huge financial success for the studio. So we’re not making a sequel right now” he says.
Previously scribe Evan Goldberg had said plans for a followup were already drawn up.
