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.
