Jonah Hex Gets Reshoots with Francis Lawrence
Reshoots are rarely a good thing., that's common knowledge. What's even rarer is a studio calling in a big name to help a small time director out with his reshoots. Martin Scorsese wasn't called in to help Spike Jonze with his Where the Wild Things Are reshoots. Brian Singer wasn't called in to help Gavin Hood with his Wolverine reshoots (we can dream). But that's exactly what's happening on the set of Jimmy Hayward's Jonah Hex.
According to Bloody Disgusting, reshoots are currently taking place for the DC flick, and Francis Lawrence (director of Constantine and the under-appreciated I Am Legend) has been called in to consult. It's not clear what Lawrence's duties will be during the reshoot. One can only assume that the studio wasn't happy with the initial cut of the film and felt Hayward needed a helping hand from a big shot.
I want to believe that this will be good for the flick. After all, it already has Josh Brolin and Will Arnett (as well as Megan Fox in old timey clothes). Perhaps, Hayward just needs some guidance and help to form a clear vision, and Lawrence could definitely help with that. But then again, when have reshoots ever been a good sign for a movie? I mean, Hayward's resume does only consist of Horton Hears a Who.
