Rogen shows off 'Green Hornet' car at Comic Con

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Seth Rogen arrived at Comic Con with a sweet ride.

The "Funny People" actor stopped by the pop-culture convention's show floor Wednesday to unveil the Black Beauty, a modified 1965 Chrysler Crown Imperial he'll drive in "The Green Hornet." Rogen, with writing partner Evan Goldberg, wrote the script to the upcoming big-screen relaunch of the comic book and TV show about a masked crime-fighter.

The vehicle is an homage to the Black Beauty driven by Van Williams in the original series. Rogen said the car's weapons — which include rockets, mini-guns and a "big flame-thrower" — were upgraded for the film to make them more powerful. The original Black Beauty from the 1960s TV show was equipped with explosive charges, gas nozzles and a scanner.
