Behind the scenes drama continue to plague the feature film adaptation of DC's Jonah Hex. The latest involves loss of directors, as well as (potential) star Josh Brolin continuing to waffle on his enthusiasm for the project. After commenting on record that he first thought the script was "awful," Brolin also began to reconsider, warming up to its campy aspect.

In the last couple months I’ve been going back and forth about it. I went back to my gut. Is it a sell out? What is it I like about this movie? … It’s so tongue in cheek. It’s so ridiculous. But once I started putting people in my mind and saying what if I put Malkovich in this role then what does this movie become? Now let’s put this producer and director on it and think about how it plays out. Then it becomes fun. Now I love that movie. If you have a great filmmaker come in then suddenly these gags and characters become interesting.

The importance of the creative team has become a prevailing point as the two directors of the film, Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor unceremoniously dropped out, citing the old standard of "creative differences." This is a project that is in deep turmoil at the moment.

Jonah Hex, a title taking place in the old west, is a dark, gritty comic that began in the early 1970's. It gained popularity for its disturbed anti-hero protagonist and adult themes. Later in the 90's, it would be adopted into DC's Vertigo label and continues in some form or another to this day. Hex has also shown his face in issues and animated episodes of Batman, Superman, and The Justice League (by virtue of time travel.)
