MASTODON SCORING JONAH HEX FILM
I know that it’s way later than normal posting hours for us here at MetalSucks, but I just read this news and I find it so exciting that I had to get it up right away.
Uber-dork Harry Knowles of Ain’t It Cool News reports the following little tidbit:
Today – and many other days as well – the metal gods known as MASTODON have been not so quietly scoring the film JONAH HEX. When I asked what itt was sounding like, the only response was, “Needless to say, pretty heavy!”
Now, I’m not really familiar with the Jonah Hex graphic novel upon which the film is based, and I’m a little suspicious that the director of the supernatural western, Jimmy Hayward, has only one previous helming credit: the animated Horton Hears a Who!
But the flick will star Josh Brolin, John Malkovich, and Megan Fox, and the idea of Mastodon scoring a movie really intrigues me. Bonus: the screenplay is by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, the same dudes who wrote and directed Crank and the Mike Patton-scored Crank 2 (plus this Friday’s crappy-looking Gamer, but whatever).
Jonah Hex is scheduled to be released on June 18, 2010.
