According to Heat Vision, Nicolas Cage has bowed out of playing the villain in Columbia Pictures The Green Hornet.

The film is being helmed by Michel Gondry.

It seems the actor and the studio couldn't come to terms on the actor's deal. Columbia is currently looking for a replacement.

The film just started shooting in Los Angeles and no scenes have been shot that contained Cage's character.

Seth Rogen, Cameron Diaz and Jay Chou star in this film.
