Warner Bros. sent over a new image featuring Josh Brolin in the upcoming June 18 comic adaptation Jonah Hex in which plays the title character, a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort, a tough and stoic gunslinger who can track down anyone…and anything. Having survived death, Jonah’s violent history is steeped in myth and legend, and has left him with one foot in the natural world and one on the “other side.” His only human connection is with Lila (Megan Fox), whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. Jonah’s past is about to catch up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can’t refuse: in exchange for his freedom from the warrants on his head, he must track down and stop the dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich). But Turnbull, who is gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah’s oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead. Based on the legendary character from the graphic novels, “Jonah Hex” is an epic adventure thriller about one man’s personal quest for redemption against the vast canvas of the battle between good and evil.
The film is directed by Jimmy Hayward (Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!) and also stars Will Arnett and Michael Shannon.
Recently there were rumors the film had been delayed as Brent Hinds of Mastodon, who’s scoring the film, hinted at such a possibility. However, Warner Bros. promises the film will meet its release date and we can expect the first trailer on April 29 attached to prints of A Nightmare on Elm Street.
