02.16.09 by REELZ
Josh Brolin's Jonah Hex movie now has another awesome actor joining its ranks. John Malkovich has joined the upcoming adaptation about the comic book cowboy and Confederate bounty hunter.
Not surprisingly, Malkovich will be playing antagonist Quentin Turnbull, who's also known as the man with the eagle-topped cane. Turnbull's son was one of Jonah Hex's military mates in the Civil War, but was killed by Union soldiers who pinned the murder on Jonah, saying he was traitor to the Confederacy. Revenge over his son's death is what sets Malkovitch's character after Hex.
The movie is still in pre-production but will be directed by Horton Hears A Who! helmer, Jimmy Hayward.
