Josh Brolin on ‘Jonah Hex’: ‘It got so derailed’
HollywoodNews.com: Josh Brolin, whose star wattage has been rising in serious dramatic fare, confessed that his headliner “Jonah Hex” misfired.
The $60 million feature based on the DC western comic book bombed at the summer box office making $10.5 million.
“We had an original intention and that got away from us,” Brolin tells MTV news.
“It got so derailed at a certain point that the assemblage of what we could use was so disconnected to what our original intention was that it just got mixed up.”
Nonetheless, “Jonah Hex” was nothing for Brolin to duck his head about. He knew it wasn’t a film that should take itself seriously like his previous credits “No Country for Old Men” or “W.”
“I still think it’s a lot of fun. If you go in there, kind of like ‘Piranha 3-D,’ when you go and see that movie and you go and think, ‘This is ridiculous,’ and, ‘This is fun,’ then you could still go in there and have a good time.”
Brolin has a triple-whammy of releases opening this fall: Woody Allen’s “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger,” Oliver Stone’s “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” and the Coen Brothers’ “True Grit.”
