Jonah Hex isn't delayed, but this guy from the band Mastodon hints otherwise

04.16.2010

I was thinking we should start a search party to look for JONAH HEX.

We haven't gotten anything new from the film. They throw us a poster or still to let us know the project is still alive, but there's no trailer. All we get is this talk of delays for this or that reason.

Now they've popped back up again to let us know that every thing is going hunky dory! A spokesperson for the studio insists a trailer is going to debut before A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. They also insist that the film is still sticking to its June 18th release date. Then on top of all that director Jimmy Hayward sent a text to the source of this story, New York mag's Vulture to say, "Trailer and film are looking great!" Whatever you say crazy man! It's just hard to believe with all the reshoots and other problems this film has had.

A slight difference of opinion came from frontman of the band Mastodon, Brent Hinds who said, "What I’ve seen so far doesn’t seem to be finished to me. I’d heard a little rumor: 'This shit ain’t gonna be ready.' But then again, Warner Bros. is such a f*cking bastard. They’re like, 'The shit comes out on the day it’s supposed to.' But what do I know? I’m just the dude to whom they’re like, ‘Hey, play some crazy f*ckin’ music!'"

Quick backstory: His band was hired to work with the film's composer John Powell on the score. Then next thing you know Francis Lawrence comes in to do reshoots or "consult" on the film with Hayward. When the reshoots came Powell had to go due to other commitments, so another composer was brought in, Marco Beltrami (REPO MEN). This caused some problems for Hinds, “All of a sudden, there’s this new guy, who went in a different direction. And there was no way he could connect with me: They brought all the new scenes to us, but I was on tour this entire time, so I had no time to preconceive what I wanted the movie to sound like. Being so busy ... it's hard to be creative when you're going through the same motions every day [onstage]."

Hinds says they are still working on the soundtrack, but his statements make me wonder if JONAH HEX will arrive on time. I also wonder how good this film is going to be with all the drama that's been going on. I guess we'll see...sooner or later.

Extra Tidbit: Did anyone see the footage at Comic-Con? The only thing I went to in Hall H was the final LOST panel.

I saw the Comic Con Footage

I was in Hall H for their big WB panel, and when we got to this one I really felt like everyone involved was just there to get a paycheck... Except for Josh Brolin, he's the man... I feel like that's what the whole movie will feel like, a big formula style movie, with some potential, but will mostly just end up being white noise, I'll see it in a theater. I don't think I'll remember it five years later.

People who mention that a hot girl is ugly because of her thumbs, they are reaching for excuses since they are unattainable.

Apart the fact that Megan Fox is in it, this movie should be a great fun ride at the theater.

Jonah Hex, starring Megan Fox, Megan Fox's titties & Megan Fox's 2 possible facial expressions. This is gonna be a HUGE bomb.

I've said since the beginning when they hired that fat, bloated pig Josh Brolin and fired the Crank directors that this movie was going to suck. Brolin is just doing the movie because it's a comic book property and comic book movies are hot now. Same reason why Warner Bros. is trying to green light a bunch of shit without having a plan in place like Marvel does. Whenever to throw together a movie to make a quick buck, you get a shitty product. That's Warner Bros. with it's DC properties in a

They got lucky with Nolan, because he's actually a talented director and writer. I'm sure if the suits at WB knew that about him, Batman Begins would never have been made.

You are right. Actors NEVER make movies for the paycheck or because they are hot property.

i hope it's good.

big fan of Palmiotti and Grey's run on the current series. love the character.
just kinda worried about how faithful the movie's going to be and more than that just that the movie might end up being just a straight up shitty flick.

I walked on the set of this flick a few weeks ago and it looked pretty bad ass. Sherlock Holmesish with a western feel. I also was in the can after one of their production meetings got out and overheard some of the grumblings (because its so easy to eavesdrop on the can) but it mostly had to do with them making their 3D conversion deadline.

Personally, I think they should push it back to November and make sure it's done right since they're going through all this reshooting work with Francis
