Thomas Jane Rejected for Jonah Hex Role

Posted: August 28th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Thomas Jane Rejected for Jonah Hex RoleSubmit Comment
"Crank" creators Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor appeared on The Movie Blog Uncut where they talked briefly about their upcoming Jonah Hex adaptation. The big question was whether they were going to cast Thomas Jane (Punisher). [via /Film]

Several months back, a photo of Jane as Jonah Hex appeared online. Neveldine and Taylor denied any ties to the photo, which was later revealed to have been created by Jane in an attempt to convince the filmmakers that he is the right man for the job.

So, is Jane our Jonah Hex? "He's a great guy," said Taylor. "But we don't see the guy as Jonah Hex, to be quite honest with you. But we like him." Neveldine added: "It was a really huge compliment to us, and we'll have him in one of our movies."

Apparently, the duo have someone else in mind, but they are not talking. "We have some options."

They mentioned that the casting process won't begin for a few more months, since the goal is to begin pre-production in January of 2009. Principal photography would begin in March 2009 in either Louisiana, Georgia or Arizona.

Jonah Hex is a fictional character, a Western comic book anti-hero created by writer John Albano and artist Tony DeZuniga. The right side of his face is horribly distinctly scarred. He was an officer for the Confederacy during the American Civil War, fought at Gettysburg and is normally shown wearing a tattered Confederate States Army jacket.

What Jonah Hex are we talking here? Original Hex or 21st Century time travel Hex? Seeing how it's the excessive Neveldine and Taylor it'll probably be futuristic-in which case you have to be retarded and partially blind not to see Jane physically in the role...but is Jane capable of all the cynical assholishness? Matthew Mcconaughey in kickass gruesome makeup? Too bad you can't go for an unknown...they'll need a big name to draw audiences to this D list hero. Hex is awesome- but I doubt anyone knows who the hell he is.

I would go for Michael Shannon.

I doubt they would go for the futuristic Hex. That thing only ran for 18 issues in the 80's. They will be stupid not to base it on the current series.
