Director May go from “Punisher’ to ‘Jonah Hex’
Lexi Alexander, director of Punisher: War Zone, opening on Friday, told Latino Review that she’s up for another comic book film. In fact, it may also star a gunslinger but from an earlier era.
She admitted to having been sent the script to Jonah Hex which is need of a director after Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor recently left the project. Alexander said, “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.
“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.”
