So, the “Jonah Hex” movie with Josh Brolin didn’t do it for ya? (Given the film’s box office, it apparently didn’t do it for a whole lot of people.) Maybe the animated short film with Thomas Jane will change your mind about the character. MTV has a minute-long preview of the “Jonah Hex” short film that will be accompanying Warner’s “Batman: Under the Red Hood”, which is scheduled out later this month.
“DC Showcase: Jonah Hex” is directed by Joaquim dos Santos from a screenplay by the legendary fiction writer Joe R. Lansdale. The film is based on an original story by veteran “Jonah Hex” comic creators Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti.
Thomas Jane leads the cast as Hex, with Michael Rooker as Red Doc. Linda Hamilton and Michelle Trachtenberg also supposedly also in the cast, though MTV seems less certain about them.
“Batman: Under the Red Hood” lands on DVD July 27th, 2010. Pre-order it now.
