New posters from the new Warner Brothers adaptation of DC Comic’s Jonah Hex have been released. These feature cast members Josh Brolin and Megan Fox.


The film comes out on June 18th, and co-stars John Malkovich and Michael Fassbender. Check out the film’s trailer on it’s official site.

Lots and lots of cool stuff is coming out from the San Diego Comic-Con (the first one I haven’t attended in the past five years). At the end of the weekend, I’m going to have a special Comic-Con round-up version of The Pit with my thoughts on some of the news coming out of the con. I figure there are enough sites with round the clock coverage that are actually there, so I can back off this one. But I did see this poster online that was revealed at the con and I think it is too cool not to post!

Josh Brolin and Megan Fox in our first Jonah Hex movie poster! This is a film that can still go either way in my mind, but I trust Brolin as an actor and the source material is awesome. We’ll see. But for now, we can enjoy this poster…

Jonah Hex

John Malkovich has joined Josh Brolin in the WB and Legendary Pictures adaptation of DC Comics’ Jonah Hex. Malkovich will protray Turnbull, a wealthy Southern plantaton owner who blames Brolin’s Hex for the death of his son.  Thankfully, this film has two great talents in front of the camera, because I’m not sure how right the behind the scenes team is.

Jimmy Hayward is on board to direct the film, his sole directing credit is Horton Hears a Who.  Nothing that I’ve seen from Horton screams supernatural western. He just seems like an off choice for the flick. Hex is being written by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the scribes behind Crank. While I enjoyed Crank, it was a pretty horrible film with absolutely no character development. Jonah Hex is a Civil War veteran turned bounty hunter who has layers. It’ll be a real shame if they waste Brolin’s talent with a mindless action film.  The icing on the cake is that Akiva “I wrote Batman and Robin” Goldsman is on board to produce the film. Why in the world does any studio let this guy anywhere near a comic book property? Or even films in general? Lets also not forget that he also produced these stinkers: ConstantinePoseidon, and  I Am Legend.
