Vulture recently talked to Brent Hinds, frontman for heavy metal outfit Mastodon and the artist behind the upcoming score for Warner Bros. big screen comic book adaptation Jonah Hex. Many have gleaned from the interview that Jimmy Hayward's film, which stars Josh Brolin as the title character, is in trouble and could be delayed. Reps for the project (via Collider) are now saying that the film will still open on June 18th of this year.
It was also reported that the first trailer for Jonah Hex will hit theaters on April 29th, attached to prints of A Nightmare on Elm Street. It is known that additional reshoots took place on Jonah Hex, and because of that, Hinds, who was on tour at the time these new scenes came in, was hard pressed to finish any new music for the film. About the score, he said, "They brought all the new scenes to us, but I was on tour this entire time, so I had no time to preconceive what I wanted the movie to sound like. Being so busy ... it's hard to be creative when you're going through the same motions every day [onstage]...I totally had to go back and start over again." It is not known whether we will get to hear all of Hinds score when, and if, the film lands on time.
