Who!'s Hayward will direct Jonah Hex, and maybe even keep the zombies?

Looks like that movie based on DC's horror Western comic Jonah Hex is galloping forward: The Hollywood Reporter says that Horton Hears a Who! helmer Jimmy Hayward has signed on to direct.

Josh Brolin is attached to star in the film, which previously had Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Crank) on board as directors. The duo, who also wrote the script, bowed out over creative differences in November.

The studio, which hopes to put the movie into production in March or April, went on a fast-track search, putting together a short list that included such names as Andy Fickman and McG before narrowing it down to Hayward.
