Christoph Waltz cast as Green Hornet's villain!

Inglourious Basterds' Hans Landa to face Seth Rogen

The Green Hornet looks like it just got 73% cooler as word arrives that Inglourious Basterds' Christoph Waltz has been cast as the film's villain.

Gossip hound Nikki Finke is reporting - and Variety has now confirmed - that Christoph Waltz will play Chudnofsky, the main bad guy.

Apparently his big evil plan to is unite all the various gangs together into a sort of supermafia.

He's replacing Nic Cage, who had been in discussions for the part, but dropped out before he signed a contract.

So now it looks like Seth Rogen and Jay Chou will have to square off against one of Basterds' main highlights - can't wait to see what Waltz does with the part.

      I'm so disappointed to hear that Waltz might actually be in this trash. I had such high hopes for him after Basterds. And if Nic Cage bails on a movie you know it's got to be complete s**t.

      Waltz's presence certainly makes this a more interesting prospect, hopefully it'll deliver on his Inglourious Basterds promise.
