Months ago I ran into Brent Hinds, guitarist for Mastodon, who mentioned that he’d just shot a cameo for the new John Malkovich movie, and that the band would be doing some music for it. That had to be Jonah Hex, but I wasn’t able to get any more details. Soon enough AICN got wind of Mastodon’s score for the film, but no further info. Now some other enterprising Atlanta boys have talked to the band and got the scoop on what we can expect to hear in the film. And I’m more excited than I expected to be, as the band says that in part, the music resembles Neil Young’s score for Dead Man! Read More »
Our first look at Josh Brolin in his Jonah Hex costume, not to mention make-up, has appeared on the Lainey Gossip blog. The main thrust of their story is some rather un-/Filmy jibber jabber about Brolin’s private life, but they decided to illustrate it with some Jonah Hex paparazzi shots from this last weekend’s shooting. Sample all three of the Brolin images after the jump, and don’t forget that there’s already been some snaps of Megan Fox in her rather… er… overt costume.

Crank directors Neveldine/Taylor left Warner Bros live-action adaptation of Jonah Hex over creative differences, leaving a gaping hole in the director’s chair. So who has Warner Bros found to replace the Crank madmen behind the camera?
You might be asking yourself who Jimmy Hayward is. I know I was when I read the announcement over on THR. Hayward was an animator on the early Pixar movies: Toy Story, A Bug’s Life, Toy Story 2, Monster’s Inc and Finding Nemo. He left Pixar to get his first shot in the director’s chair over at Blue Sky Studios, 20th Century Fox’s computer animation house. He directed 2008′s Horton Hears a Who! and did some additional direction on Robots.
Yes, that’s right – Jonah Hex will be Hayward’s live-action directorial debut. Warner Bros hopes to put the project into production in March or April, with Neveldine/Taylor’s screenplay, which begs the question — why did Neveldine/Taylor leave over “creative differences” if they’re using the same screenplay they wrote. I’m sure there is a lot more to the story. Josh Brolin is still attached to star.
Jonah Hex is a former alcoholic and confederate soldier turned supernatural loner and gunslinger. The comic book was introduced in the 1970’s, created by writer John Albano and artist Tony DeZuniga, the character received his signature scar at the hands of Indians who placed a hot tomahawk to his face. His mother was a prostitute and his dad sold him into slavery.
Carol Burnett, Seth Rogen, Will Arnett, Isla Fisher, Dan Fogler, Amy Poehler, Dane Cook, Jaime Pressly and Jonah Hill will join Jim Carrey and Steve Carell in the computer animated adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who.
