I’m gonna say this right at the top: I’m not the world’s biggest Jonah Hex fan. Mostly because I’m not a huge Western fan — but if I was, I’d totally be down with following the comic-book adventures of a surly, scarred bounty hunter. And I will go see a Jonah Hex movie directed by Jimmy Hayward because Hayward’s last flick, Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!, was a terrifically smart bit of filmmaking. And if Josh Brolin stays on as the title character? Sold.
How about you? Does the idea of a Jonah Hex movie get you itching for the saddle? What other mid-level comic book character would you like to see get the big-screen treatment?
