‘Jonah Hex’ Needs a New Director
Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the team behind Crank, have withdrawn from Jonah Hex according to Variety. They wrote the script and intended to direct beginning in March with Josh Brolin (W.) in talks to play the disfigured bounty hunter.
The reason officially provided is that there were “creative differences” which could mean just about anything.
The studio told the trade they intended to replace the pair quickly to keep Brolin on board and still shoot in winter 2009. This is yet another setback to DC Comics getting films off the ground in a highly competitive marketplace.
