Now this is different. After losing duo Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor over creative differences, Warner Bros. has responded by hiring Jimmy Hayward to direct Jonah Hex, the adaptation of the DC comic.

So who is Jimmy Hayward?

Jimmy Hayward to Direct Jonah Hex

Don't be too surprised if you haven't heard of him in the live-action circuit, as Jonah Hex will be Hayward's live-action debut. The helmer recently directed Horton Hears a Who.

The character of Hex, known for having the right side of his face disfigured and wearing a Confederate army uniform, was a rough-and-tumble gunslinger and part-time bounty hunter whose adventures always ended in blood. One incarnation of his comic book series saw the Western genre combined with supernatural elements, and it's this aspect that was featured in Neveldine and Taylor's script. The studio will likely keep the script, though it's expected that Hayward will put his stamp on it.

Hayward was on a short list of names that included Andy Fickman and McG. Josh Brolin is still set to topline.

The studio is still hoping to get the film into production in March or April.
