Photos have been posted online of on-set photos with Seth Rogen, Cameron Diaz and Jay Chou. When photos of Cage haven’t shown up, rumors began to go wild. Michel Gondry is directing the film from a script by Evan Goldberg and Rogen.

There’s talk that Cage backed out due to scheduling conflicts with his other films scheduled to shoot within the next year. With him being super busy, it can’t be too surprising to hear him back out of the film.

The actor is reporedly working on “Riot,” “Drive Angry,” “Time Share,” and “Ghost Rider 2,” according to IMDB. He’s already finished work on “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans,” “Astro Boy,” “Kick-Ass,” “Season of the Witch,” and “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” all waiting to be released.

Now that Cage is out, who will be in? The role as the film’s villain is now up for grabs. Any takers? Who would you like to see replace Cage in the “Green Hornet”?
