Sorry, but it’s impossible for me to think of Will Arnett as anyone other than his Arrested Development persona, Gob Bluth. His involvement in this summer’s supernatural Western Jonah Hex has me more curious than I’d usually be, and today he’s promising that the comic’s signature dark tone will remain intact.
Superhero Hype sat down with Arnett to discuss his part in the film. “[My character] is much more serious, I hope. Otherwise I’ve failed miserably at my job. I play a guy who’s in the Union army right after the Civil War. I enlist Jonah Hex, played by Josh Brolin, to do our bidding for us and to track down John Malkovich.” Arnett promises ”a very kind of heavy movie…it’s dark and actiony…[a] real fun, dark, sweaty movie.”
We’ll find out whether or not Hollywood stays true to Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti’s source material (which is currently undergoing ten days of additional shooting) when Jonah Hex, starring Josh Brolin, Megan Fox, John Malkovich and, of course, Will Arnett, opens on June 18, 2010.
