Josh Brolin On New ‘Jonah Hex’ Director: ‘He’s Amazing’

Sure, the comics scene has been buzzing since Warner Bros. announced earlier today that its big-screen adaptation of edgy DC Comics series “Jonah Hex” would be directed by Jimmy Hayward of “Horton Hears a Who” — but what does Josh Brolin, the actor likely to star in the film, think about the new guy behind the camera?

In an interview with MTV News, Brolin called Hayward an “amazing” choice to direct the film, and said the filmmaker would bring something “truly unique” to the project — making it seem as if his previous, somewhat ambiguous commitment to “Jonah Hex” might be on firmer footing these days.

Do you agree with Brolin’s opinion about Hayward and “Jonah Hex”? Think this will make the actor a sure thing to play the controversial bounty hunter? Let us know!
