Jonah Hex Needs New Director
Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the guys who created Crank, have dropped out of the Jonah Hex project with Warner Brothers. Jonah Hex, a cowboy gunslinger comic book character, was set to hit the big screen with these guys writing and directing and Josh Brolin in talks to star, but things have fallen apart because of creative differences with the studio.
This kind of sucks, because (needless to say) I really like these guys and it would have been awesome to see their take on a western, no matter how supernatural it got. Word is that Brolin is still attached to the project, but the studio is quickly trying to find replacements for Neveldine/Taylor.
