A new director, reshoots and an earlier release date has us worried about Jonah Hex.
Reshoots are never a good sign for a movie.
Does anyone think they made a damn bit of difference on "Wolverine"? Nope. The movie still sucked. Angelina Jolie's "Salt" is currently enduring them, "Clash of the Titans" announced reshoots at the end of 2009, and now "Jonah Hex, " Warner Brothers' feature-film adaptation of the DC comic series, is set for ten days of reshoots in order to add 12 pages of action.
This isn't the first sign of trouble for "Hex," which lost its original writing duo, "Crank" scribes Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. The terminally awesome pair left the production over multiple issues with their star, Josh Brolin, including his distaste for the script and the multiple changes he demanded.
Replacing "Horton Hears a Who" director Jimmy Hayward is Francis Lawrence, the man behind the should've-been-better "I Am Legend." We're sure Brolin is thrilled with that development.
"Jonah Hex," also starring Megan Fox and John Malkovich, centers on a scar-faced gunslinger who's enlisted to track down a former Confederate general who is raising an army of the undead in order to liberate the South.
But if this movie ends up sucking, nobody's gonna blame the script, the director or Brolin. America's pointing the finger directly at Megan Fox. Sure, she's gorgeous, but that chick is a jinx! "Jennifer's Body," "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People" -- every project she picks turns out to be crap.
