Jonah Hex – Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on April 29, 2010

This trailer has its moments but seems to be a bit all over the place. Hex is a great character yet I’m not sure whether the film will do him justice. I could be wrong although I do get a whiff of Wild, Wild West about it. We shall have to wait and see.

Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) is a scarred drifter and bounty hunter of last resort, a tough and stoic gunslinger who can track down anyone…and anything. Having survived death, Jonah’s violent history is steeped in myth and legend, and has left him with one foot in the natural world and one on the “other side.” His only human connection is with Leila (Megan Fox), whose life in a brothel has left her with scars of her own. But Jonah’s past is about to catch up with him when the U.S. military makes him an offer he can’t refuse: in exchange for his freedom from the warrants on his head, he must track down and stop the dangerous terrorist Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich). But Turnbull, who is gathering an army and preparing to unleash Hell, is also Jonah’s oldest enemy and will stop at nothing until Jonah is dead. Based on the legendary graphic novel, “Jonah Hex” is an epic adventure thriller about one man’s personal quest for redemption against the vast canvas of the battle between good and evil.

Jonah Hex – A clear look at Josh Brolin’s scarred face

Posted by LiveFor on April 20, 2010

It has been an age since we saw anything of the Jonah Hex movie. Adapted from the comic book character this is the first proper look of Josh Brolin as the bounty hunter. I must say he looks a lot like the comic version which is very cool. No sign of Megan Fox though.

We will finally get a trailer for Jonah Hex that will premiere on the SyFy channel the night of April 29th. Then it will be attached to A Nightmare on Elm Street screenings.

What do you think of Brolin’s look?

UPDATED: Megan Fox as Red Sonja? Metal bikini ahoy!

Posted by LiveFor on April 5, 2010

It looks as if the Robert Rodriguez Red Sonja movie starring Rose McGowan is no more. He had been saying that they were going to wait and see how the new Conan movie was going to do. That may not be totally true.

According to Pajiba, the current incarnation of the Sonja has been scrapped.

Red Sonja was a comic book character created by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith. She was part of the Conan the Barbarian universe and was a kick ass warrior who wore some skimpy chainmail armour. Brigitte Neilsin played her in a film version many moons ago.

However, the project is not dead as Millenium Films are after someone to rewrite the script by David N White and rumour has it that an offer has been made to a Megan Fox.

Before I go any further here is a pic of Red Sonja, so it is possible Fox would be wearing something similar.

You still with me?

Now we all know Fox hasn’t really done anything to show her acting chops so we don’t actually know what she is capable of. She can run, pout and pose in Transformers and Jennifer’s Body just failed and slunk away before anyone noticed. She is starring in the comic adaption of Jonah Hex, but no word on her performance yet.

Could this be the role that makes her? Is the rumour even true?

Do you think Fox is the right choice for Red Sonja? Will she suit the flaming red hair (anyone want to do a photoshop thingy that I can post)? Who would be a better choice for the role and who should direct it?

UPDATE: Thanks to Pat for knocking this one together using one of the Rose McGowan teaser posters from a while back (check out both of them here). Anybody got any more?

– Kevin Smith’s buddy cop comedy A Couple of Dicks has a new title that will be announced soon. The first trailer for the film will be attached to every copy of “Sherlock Holmes” when it hits theatres Christmas Day. Unlike his other work, Smith days the film is “not MY movie, [its] a movie I was hired to direct.”

– The 3D sequel Resident Evil: Afterlife has been pushed back several months from August 2010 to a January 14th 2011 release.

– Scott Stewart’s Vampire Western, Priest, starring Paul Bettany has been moved up two months from October to August 27th.

– Producer Wyck Godfrey (“The Twilight Saga”) talks about adapting hit XBox 360 game Gears of War to the big screen and says the film will be “Cloverfield”-esque where we start with the planet pre-Emergence Day and follow the action as the peace is shattered by the Locusts. Makingof have more.

– Joe Penhall (“The Road,” “Enduring Love”) is set to pen an adaptation of John Williams’ 1960 Western novel Butcher’s Crossing for Focus Features says The Hollywood Reporter. Set during the 1870s, the adventure story centers on a man who drops out of Harvard and heads west to the small Kansas town of the title. There, he joins the search for a great buffalo herd. Sam Mendes is considering directing the film.

– Rashida Jones (“Parks and Recreation,” “I Love You, Man”) has joined the cast of David Fincher’s The Social Network for Sony Pictures reports Variety. Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake, Andrew Garfield and Joe Mazzello star in the film which revolves around the founders of the social-networking website Facebook.

Spoiler TV reports that several roles are out to cast for reshoots on Platinum Dunes’ remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street. All the scenes seem to be for a diner scene where the lead character Nancy works and only consist of a few lines at most.

Jonah Hex is getting another two weeks of reshoots according to Collider. They are currently casting for the new scenes that seem to deal with Jonah’s past.

Josh Brolin in Men in Black 3?

Posted by LiveFor on December 9, 2009

Josh Brolin has been going from strength to strength lately. From The Goonies to W., Milk, No Country for Old Men and the forthcoming Jonah Hex he is definitely, like Hanzel, so hot right now. He was also cool in Planet Terror and is also working on Wall Street 2 and has signed up for the Coen Brothers True Grit remake.

News today from Hero Complex suggests he is being considered for a role in Men in Black 3 where he would be donning the suit and shades with Will Smith likely to return as Agent J.

The question is what role would Brolin be playing? Will Tommy Lee Jones be passing the title of Agent K to him or will Brolin be playing a younger version of Agent K? Maybe the plot will involve time travel shenanigans. Maybe Brolin will be the big bad of the piece.

Sony is currently contemplating a production start for the picture in 2010 (though it has yet to be greenlit). The film, which is based on a script by “Tropic Thunder” writer Ethan Cohen and which tentatively has Barry Sonnenfeld coming back to direct, could shoot at least partly in New York.

It all sounds like it could be very, very cool. I thought the first film was great. Funny, good action and nice chemistry between Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. However, cast your mind back to Men in Black 2. That wasn’t so hot now was it and I felt it kind of killed the series.

Still, third time’s the charm and if they get a cracking story it could work. It would be nice if Tommy Lee Jones was also in it for that No Country for Old Men team up again. Would be nice to see Brolin and Jones actually share some screen time together.

What are your thoughts on Brolin fighting the scum of the universe? Do you want a Men in Black 3? How can they improve on the second film?

Jane Eyre – Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender may star in Sin nombre director’s next film

Posted by LiveFor on November 20, 2009

Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender are currently in negotiations to star in “Sin nombre” Cary Fukunaga’s (Sin nombre) adaptation of Charlotte Bronte’s classic novel, Jane Eyre.

The film is to be a period piece but will play up the gothic elements of the story about Jane (Wasikowska), a demure governess who discovers her surly employer Rochester (Fassbender) is harboring a dark secret.

Wasikowska will next be seen as Alice alongside Johnny Depp in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, which Disney is releasing next year. The actress is also going to be in Gus Van Sant’s untitled project for producers Bryce Dallas Howard and Imagine’s Ron Howard and Brian Grazer.

I don’t think I have actually seen her in anything yet so not sure how good an actress she is. Ellen Page (Juno, Inception) was originally down to play Jane, but has since left the project.

Fassbender previously appeared in Steve McQueen’s Hunger, Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds and Andrea Arnold’s Fish Tank.

He will next be seen in Neil Marshall’s Roman action film Centurion and Warner Bros. comic book western Jonah Hex opposite Josh Brolin and Megan Fox.

Fassbender is a totally solid actor. He was spot on as Basterd and just seems to be going from strength to strength which each new film. I have no doubt he will make a splendid Rochester.

I am just really curious to see what Fukunaga will do with this classic tale. Shooting is due to start next year.

Matt Damon and Josh Brolin have True Grit with the Coens

Posted by LiveFor on October 27, 2009

truegritMatt Damon is in discussions to star in Ethan and Joel Coen’s remake of True Grit. Josh Brolin, who starred in the brothers’ No Country for Old Men and is starring in the comic book Western Jonah Hex, is also in talks for a major role according to THR.

Paramount Pictures and the Oscar-winning writer-director team are moving fast on their re-adaptation of the Charles Portis novel, first reaching out to Jeff Bridges, and now Damon and Brolin, to potentially star. Damon would take on the Glen Campbell role of a Texas Ranger tracking an outlaw along with a gruff U.S. marshal originally played by John Wayne, who won an Oscar for his role in the 1969 Western.

All three actors are in discussions with the studio, which hopes to move into production in the spring. The story concerns a 14-year-old girl traveling into dangerous territory with the two lawmen in search of the man who murdered her father, who Brolin would play.

Some nice casting in this one so far. Could be one of the Coen Brothers great ones.
