Jonah Hex needs a new Director

by Joey Paur

For a long time now the two directors of the movie 'Crank' Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor have been attached to direct the comic book adaptation of 'Jonah Hex'. Well, it now looks like they have both quit the project because they are quitters. Josh Brolin is still set to star in the film as the title character. 

Variety Reports:

Neveldine and Taylor wrote the script, but their exit as directors was attributed to "creative differences." The studio is moving quickly to set a new director, determined to keep Brolin in the fold for a spring start. Neveldine and Taylor are best known for writing and directing the Jason Statham starrer "Crank."

Ah yes, it all comes down to creative differences, perhaps it was over location, effects, story or money. You know what though, I don't really care that they aren't directing the movie anymore, there are better directors out there, lets just hope the studio chooses one of them. They will probably end up getting another director that directs fun and cheesy action movies like Paul W.S. Anderson or someone like that. Thoughts?
