This is news to me, because I thought it was already a done deal. I guess this means that it really really is going to happen this time.
Many of you may remember that Kevin Smith was at one time going to helm this flick, but dropped out of consideration.
Rogen is co-writing the film with his longtime friend and Superbad co-scribe, Evan Goldberg. Rogen will also play the title character, a newspaper magnate named Britt Reid who fights crime at night with the help of his driver, Kato.
No director has been announce yet, but expect word on that soon if the film is expected to meet its planned June 25, 2010 release date.
