Lexi "Punisher" Alexander May Direct Jonah Hex Movie

The controversial director of Punisher: War Zone, Lexi Alexander, has been offered the Jonah Hex movie.

Last month we reported about Jonah Hex losing its directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor. Well now word has come in via IGN, and it looks like Warner Bros hasn't lost any time in finding new prospects for the project.

This from IGN...

Director Lexi Alexander revealed today while doing press for her new film Punisher: War Zone that she's now being offered several different comic book films as her next project, specifically naming Warner Bros.' Jonah Hex as one of them. ...She's currently reading the script that Neveldine and Taylor wrote, and is most intrigued by the prospect of possibly working with Josh Brolin, who is attached to play the gunslinging title character. Praising his work in W. and No Country for Old Men, Alexander said she would definitely direct Jonah Hex should Brolin fully commit to the picture. She said that she wasn't keen on doing another comic book movie until the chance to possibly work with Brolin on Hex presented itself.

In the 70's comics version, Jonah Hex was a confederate officer turned bounty hunter whose face is terribly scarred.
