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.
