Brolin, Malkovich to Face Off in Jonah Hex

Josh Brolin and John Malkovich have been confirmed as headlining Jonah Hex, an adaptation of the popular DC Comics Western series, Variety reports.

Brolin, nominated for a best supporting actor Oscar for his role in Milk, has long been rumored for the lead role, a grotesquely scarred gunslinger. Malkovich will play Turnbull, a Southern plantation owner who blames Hex for the death of his son in the Civil War.

Film is being directed by Johnny Hayward (Horton Hears A Who!), and is a Warner Bros.-Legendary Pictures production.
