Seth Rogen‘s “Green Hornet” has had its share of problems, but now that filming has started, he’s looking good.

A new set photo surfaced today of Rogen in his Hornet getup. The movie, based on a pulp-fiction character and most famous for a 1966 television series, follows Britt Reid — a descendant of the Lone Ranger — who fights crime alongside his kung-fu master chauffeur Kato. Cameron Diaz will co-star as Reid’s love interest.

Without further ado, here’s Rogen as the Hornet:

The production has been beset with problems, from actors dropping out — director/co-star Stephen Chow and potential villain Nicolas Cage among them — to delays in the release date. “Green Hornet” will buzz to theaters Dec. 22, 2010.
