“The Green Hornet” star and co-writer Seth Rogen, his writing partner Evan Goldberg and director Michel Gondry kicked off the 2009 Comic-Con in San Diego in grand fashion this evening, unveiling the film’s “Black Beauty” — a night-black, gadget-filled car that Green Hornet and his sidekick Kato will use in the film.
The debut of the tricked-out ride earned a fair share attention from fans — including the trio of filmmakers, who each posed for photos around the car like regular ol’ conventioners after the vehicle was revealed.
“Sometimes you have to go a long way to get back to where you started,” Rogen told MTV News. “We went to a lot of major auto manufacturers who pitched different designs and different futuristic takes on it. To us, it was important that it seem like a guy could actually build this car, that it was something you could use on the streets. We ended up falling back on the original ’66 Chrysler Imperial.”
