It's been a while since the realm of comicdom has shat out anything that's really piqued the interest of Yours Truly, but this afternoon all that came to a screaching halt as a laid eyes upon a teaser one sheet of Dynamite Entertainment's upcoming comic book adaptation of Kevin "Clerks" Smith's unproduced Green Hornet film.
I love Kevin Smith, and every time I pop open a comic book he's penned it's brought at least one or two shivers up my geekly spinal column. When the announcement was made a while ago that he'd be working on the Green Hornet film, I was pretty stoked. Unfortunately, as most Hollywood announcements go, the dreams of Smith penned Hornet film went the way of the Dodo, and it never saw the flicker of a movie house lights. To add insult to injury, the property was (for reasons that boggle the imagination) handed over to that badly shaven, butterball Seth Rogen, who's slated to play the Hornet in an altogether different, upcoming feature.
Is it a planned comedy, an action movie..? Who the fuck knows. All I know is that the Smith Hornet script is being made into a comic. And if that ain't enough to get your nerd juices spewin', check out the following images by none other than Alex Ross and J. Scott Campbell...
