Horton Director Now Taking On Jonah Hex
01.06.09 by REELZ
Jimmy Hayward, the director of animated movie and Dr. Seuss story Horton Hears a Who, will be entering the world of live-action movies with the comics/western Jonah Hex, about a confederate soldier turned bounty hunter.
This news comes only a few weeks after Crank creatives Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor had been attached as writers and co-directors, but then left the project over "creative differences."
Also attached in the title role is W star Josh Brolin.
The property comes out of DC Comics via Warner Bros., and will be put into production as early as March.
