Nicolas Cage must sure love him some tightsâ€¦
The actor looks set to return to the superhero genre for director Michael Gondry’s â€œThe Green Hornetâ€. Cage, up for the role of the gangster villain in the action/comedy, had previously been involved in comic-book flicks â€œSuperman Livesâ€ (which died about a week into production â€“ but still long enough for Cage to get comfortable in the â€˜blackâ€™ â€˜capelessâ€™ Superman outfit) and â€œGhost Riderâ€. Heâ€™s also said to be attached to star in some kind of a â€œGhost Riderâ€ follow-up.
Meanwhile, Variety has confirmed rumours that Cameron Diaz is up for the filmâ€™s love interest. Sheâ€™d play a reporter who falls for Seth Rogenâ€™s crime-fighter.
The flick, which recently lost Stephen Chow (He was to play Kato; the role is currently being recast), is set to lens in the Fall.
