Nicolas Cage is in early talks with Columbia Pictures to play the gangster villain in THE GREEN HORNET, reports VARIETY.

Cameron Diaz has been in discussions to play a reporter and love interest to Seth Rogan's masked crime fighter. Michel Gondry is directing the film, set for a fall start date. Last week, the studio announced they were looking to replace Stephen Chow as sidekick Kato.

The film is set for a summer 2010 release.

Rogen and writing partner Evan Goldberg wrote the script. Neal Moritz is producing via his Original Films banner.
