Sources tell Hollywood Elsewhere that “No Country for Old Men” and “W.” star Josh Brolin has signed on for the title role in Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Jonah Hex”.
HE editor Jeff Wells is confident in the scoop and claims that “the deal is sealed”. Yet the studio will not confirm the rumor, and Brolin’s rep claims the actor is “not attached.”
Jonah Hex is a western comic book anti-hero, a middle-aged bounty hunter and gunslinger with a heavily scarred face whose quest in the film is tracking down a voodoo practitioner. Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (“Crank,” “Pathology”) are helming the project.
