Georgia’s prog rockers Mastodon have been given the giant task of composing the score for the 2010 release of Jonah Hex – another DC Comics adaptation.
The film’s title is also the main character, a scarred ‘western anti-hero’ who is rather akin to Clint Eastwood in Man With No Name. Directed by Jimmy Hayward (Horton Hears A Who!) the film is set to star Transformers Megan Fox and Planet Terror‘s Josh Brolin.
Mastodon are working with composer John Powell to harden up the soundtrack.
