Francis Lawrence Brought In to Consult on Jonah Hex Reshoots
Even more reshoot news? It's not uncommon for most major movies to do reshoots, it's just something that movie studios can afford to do when they're working on big movies. But it's always distressing to hear about reshoots on a project we're excited about, especially when it comes with some interesting additional details. For example, Bloody-Disgusting is reporting tonight that Jonah Hex is doing some reshoots over the next few weeks. However, Warner Bros has decided to bring on I Am Legend and Constantine director Francis Lawrence to "consult" on the reshoots (as in, to make sure they turn out much better than previously).
Jonah Hex, based on the DC Comics character, is (or rather was) being directed by Jimmy Hayward, who's only other directing credit is on the animated movie Horton Hears a Who. This is his first live-action feature film and I'm sure that means he's not as experience as other directors who have spent years working on sets. So I imagine that Lawrence is helping guide and consult him on these reshoots so they can perfect some scenes that didn't turn out they want they wanted originally (or they way Warner Brothers wanted). From the footage we saw at Comic-Con, it look pretty damn cool, but that was all raw, rough footage. Let's hope this isn't anything we should be worried about, as I'm still looking forward to Jonah Hex next year.

how can you be excited Jonah Hex im not cause of Jimmy Hayward. Warner Bros should not even hire Jimmy Hayward to do the movie the film the first place he got no experience in live action movie at all. i would of have more faith in the movie if he had at least a few experience in live action movie. its good that Francis Lawrence can come a help on the reshoots but i have a strange feeling Jimmy Hayward fucked up for some reason. oh well we wait and see when the trailer comes out and then the movie.

This happens all the time,recent examples Sherlock holmes and Wolfman,both by more experienced directors than this guy.Interesting they brought in Lawrence,another zombie movie director and personally I really like his films including I am Legend.

Not a bad thing, it gives the feeling that the Director is in control of the film.

The new first time Director Jimmy Hayward sounds to me that he as not had enough live action experiance in Directing that why WB have brought in Francies Lawrance.
