Neveldine, Taylor leave ‘Jonah Hex’

Josh Brolin expected to star in adaptation

Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor have dropped out as the directors of “Jonah Hex,” the DC Comics property that is expected to headline “W.” and “Milk” star Josh Brolin as a partly disfigured gunslinger and bounty hunter.

Neveldine and Taylor wrote the script, but their exit as directors was attributed to “creative differences.” The studio is moving quickly to set a new director, determined to keep Brolin in the fold for a spring start. Neveldine and Taylor are best known for writing and directing the Jason Statham starrer “Crank.”

“Jonah Hex” is produced by Andrew Lazar’s Mad Chance and Akiva Goldsman’s Weed Road.
