Despite reports that he’s keen on playing the film version of the character Jonah Hex, Josh Brolin flatly denied the casting talk in an interview this weekend with Collider.
At present, Brolin says he doesn’t know if he’s doing it or not – “I don’t know what I’m going to do. I don’t know. It’s a very good time. It’s a very good time and I don’t want to slight anybody and I don’t want to insult anybody, but the fact of the matter is with more decisions comes a little more pressure. For me, I just try and find that thing that really resonates.”
An alternative is foremost in his mind, saying “There’s one thing that Tony Scott’s doing that I love and that I really want to do, and trying to find the timing and all that.” He sadly refused to release any further details on that project.
He doesn’t entirely dismiss the project though – “I think Jonah Hex is a really, really interesting story. I think it would be risky also, which I like, and I don’t know if it’s the thing to do.”
