Arnett, Shannon for Jonah Hex

Arrested Development’s Will Arnett and Revolutionary Road’s Oscar nominee Michael Shannon are to take roles in Jonah Hex, the upcoming adaptation of the DC comic series.

Already signed on are Josh Brolin, John Malkovich and Megan Fox for a story about a bounty hunter tracking a voodoo master who is seeking to raise an army of undead soldiers and liberate the south.

It’s being directed by Jimmy Hayward who co-directed the entertaining Horton Hears a Who and is a former Pixar animator.

I wouldn’t say I’m overly excited about the film at present but the presence of Brolin in the lead role is encouraging and the story itself sounds terrific. Should Hayward be able to levy all the visual prowess he must have learnt during his time with Pixar, it could well end up a very interesting work.
