The first spy pics of Josh Brolin as Jonah Hex have arrived online via Lainey Gossip, and while we're sure some special CGI effects will be added later to make Brolin look even meaner and nastier, these images pretty much prove that he's the right man for the job. Adapted from the popular comic series (with supernatural elements), Jonah Hex is a Western comic book anti-hero who's reminiscent of Clint Eastwood in films like Man with No Name. He's a tough-as-nails bounty hunter who's known for the giant scar on his face (which is why Brolin looks like he's sporting some serious acne issues).
Jonah Hex -- which follows Hex as he tries to track down a voodoo practitioner hell-bent on releasing an army of the undead -- also stars Megan Fox, John Malkovich, Will Arnett and Michael Shannon. It's due in theaters on August 6, 2010. Check out images of Megan Fox in full costume over on Cinematical, and a larger version of the image above down in the gallery below.
