New Jonah Hex Image and Synopsis
Ever since the producers over at Legendary Pictures shafted Tom Jane out of the titular role of the scarred gunslinger in Jonah Hex I've had a bit of a bad taste in my mouth about the film. Not that I don't like Josh Brolin, but Tom Jane went out of his way to put together a pretty excellent get-up to try and sell himself as the man for the job. That sort of devotion to a character shouldn't go unnoticed. That said, here's some Jonah Hex news.
Brazilian website Omelete cooked up this brand new, official image of Jonah himself. It's more of a teaser than anything else and something tells me we'll see this on a poster sooner rather than later, but it's still a pretty cool image and gives you a good look at just how mangled up the anti-hero is.
The real news for any fans of the DC comic series will be that Omelete also got their hands on a full on synopsis of the story, so you can finally be the judge on whether or not they followed the comics or just winged it.
”Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) is 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 Leila (Megan Fox), whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. But 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 graphic novel, “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.”
Jonah Hex will be dropping June 18th, 2010 so expect to see at least a teaser trailer very soon. With the cast being what it is (Josh Brolin, Will Arnett, Michael Shannon) as long as you can stomach Megan Fox (who I'm fully convinced should be replaced in every role by the similar looking yet infinitely better actress Olivia Wilde) Hex should turn out to be a pretty competent actioner.
