Warners Planning Jonah Hex Film

Warner Bros. Pictures is bringing DC Comics’ Western anti-hero comic “Jonah Hex” to the big screen says The Hollywood Reporter.

Hex, known for having the right side of his face disfigured and wearing a Confederate army uniform, was a rough-and-tumble gunslinger and part-time bounty hunter whose adventures always ended in blood.

The filmmakers are not making a straight-ahead Western but plan to develop the character with some of the supernatural overtones in the hopes of creating a franchise.

Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (“Crank”) will adapt and likely direct.
