Wikepdeia's description of Jonah Hex states, "Jonah Hex is a fictional character, a Western comic book anti-hero created by writer John Albano and artist Tony DeZuniga and published by DC Comics. The right side of his face is horribly distinctly scarred. He was an officer for the Confederacy during the American Civil War, fought at Gettysburg and is normally shown wearing a tattered Confederate States Army jacket. Hex is surly and cynical, and is in many ways similar to Clint Eastwood's Man with No Name or The Outlaw Josey Wales."
A movie has been in the works for a while now, but things fell apart when key players in the movie left. Read all about that from Ben's Daily Movie News.
Now Latino Review got to speak to the director for the new Punisher film, "Punisher: War Zone." Lexi Alexander 9who also directed "Green Street Hooligans") says she is interested in directing "Jonah Hex."
According to Latino Review, "I asked which scripts she had been sent. She mentioned that she was sent the script for Jonah Hex, and really liked it.
After the junket [for 'Punisher: War Zone'] I had to ask her more about it.
Do you like the script so far?
Lexi: I do. I like it even more that Mr. Josh Brolin is still attached. Who knows if he'll stay, but it's more exciting than I thought. You get a story like this you think, 'Oh God, I'm going to be doing the same thing over and over again.' but it's really, really interesting.
A lot of fans want to see this on the big screen.
Lexi: Ya. I would change some things in the script, but you know. It's not there yet. I'm sure there's many, many directors up for the same thing."
So there you have it folks, Lexi Alexander might direct Jonah Hex and it sounds like Josh Brolin ("No Country for Old Men," "Grindhouse," and "W.") is still in the works for playing the outlaw cowboy.
More news to come! Catch ya' later!
