Comic Anti-hero "Jonah Hex" Coming To Big Screen

Warner Bros. Pictures is working to bring DC Comics' Western anti-hero comic book "Jonah Hex" to the big screen.

Hex, who was created by writer John Albano and artist Tony DeZuniga is known for having the right side of his face disfigured and wearing a Confederate army uniform, was a gunslinger and part-time bounty hunter whose adventures always ended in blood.

"Hex" first appeared in the early 1970s in the issues of "All-Star Western" before graduating to his own series in 1977 that ran for about 10 years. The character also had a version in the 1990s that combined the Western genre with supernatural elements. He returned with a new series in 2005.

The movie will be developed by "Crank" filmmakers Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. Word is they don't plan on making a straight Western but plan to develop the character with some of the supernatural overtones in the hopes of creating a franchise.
