There won't be a follow-up to last year's Hollywood adaptation of The Green Hornet, producer Neal Moritz told The Hollywood Reporter.
Although the Seth Rogen-starring superhero flick didn't have much critical success, it did make a profit -- just not enough of a profit for Columbia Pictures to consider producing a sequel.
The movie did almost $250 million and was actually very well liked, but we made the movie for too much money. One, we made it in L.A. for certain reasons, and two, we decided to go to 3D -- that added another $10 million. If I had done it in a tax-rebate state and not done 3D, it would have been considered a huge financial success for the studio. So we're not making a sequel right now.
The movie had a reported budget of $120 million, so that $250 million take represents a tidy profit. But considering that Moritz also produced the Fast & Furious franchise, which has earned $1.6 billion and counting, it makes sense that he might see a measly $100 million or so as not worth it.
