New Jonah Hex Photos With Josh Brolin & Megan Fox

Posted by G-Man (39196 posts) - - Show Bio

I've recently become a Jonah Hex fan thanks to Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray.  I was never a big fan of Westerns but Jonah Hex has been a great read. 
A movie adaption is underway from Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros.  Josh Brolin will be Jonah Hex, Jonh Malkovich is his nemesis Quentin Turnbull and there's also this actress named Megan Fox playing the role of Leila, a prostitute that carries a gun. 
According to IMDB, here's the synopsis: 

In the Wild West, a scarred bounty hunter tracks a voodoo practitioner bent on liberating the South by raising an army of the undead.    

Additional filming has been going on.  Is that a bad thing?  Does that mean that things weren't going well and the film makers are trying to clean it up?  Not necessarily.  Jimmy Palmiotti posted some new set images in his blog and said: 

...they are doing some additional scenes which will help expand on the story and back story, a good thing, trust me.

Here's the rest of those photos:    

The release date is June 18, 2010.  Now go buy and read some Jonah Hex comics!

Interesting that Brolin isn't wearing a CGI-patch.  Or maybe he just takes it off between takes.

if this isn't going to be true to the comics, then what's it going to be about

the fact that megan fox is in this movie should be a bad omen, just like any movie Nicholas Cage is in. this movie is gonna suck

I love the 70's Hex series... which is why every new peace of news makes me madder.... 
1.  There is nothing remotley supernatural in his series... 
2. Megan Fox's character dosen't even exist... 
3.  He needs to be way more deformed than he is in those pictures.... 
G-man, How can you not love a good western?!

The story of raising an army of the dead has been to death. I hope the polt was going to be more original.

Well, I know why I'll be seeing this movie when it comes out.

My thoughts exactly on the make up, found this. Makes it look a bit better.
@frogger:  I think they shot down the idea of the zombie army. I don't know though. They have played it too hell though. Especially in the civil war/western genre, in instance the horrible movie Grey Knight with Martin Sheen and Billy Bob Thornton about a voodoo practicing slave girl who brings back dead rebel and union soldiers too fight the living.

Probably to do for Jonah Hex what she was able to do for the Transformers franchise - fill the plot holes - - : ) HA! I've got my fingers crossed for this movie with or without the Fox Factor...

Megan Fox thinks Wonder Woman is lame, and lies about reading comic books, so pft! on her, and her hideous thumbs. Don't get me wrong, she's beautiful, but a real piece of work. Josh's Jonah make-up looks decent, but his face needs just a LITTLE more mutilation.

This could be cool. Looking forward to it. I imagine there will be a CG overlay to the face we can see there. 
Megan Fox is in it because she's hot, she knows it and therefore doesn't mind taking jobs to be the eye candy. Which in some ways i respect. She knows that she isn't a superb actress but if someone offered you that amount of money to be in a film with your shirt unbuttoned to the navel wouldn't you do it? I sure as hell i know i would. 
Besides she wasn't that bad in Transformers. But then nobody else was either..... and that was still a fantastic film.

At the very least Mastodon is doing the soundtrack which should be epic.
