(Source: latinoreview.com)  Jonah Hex Given Mo Money Mo Money Mo Money. Every movie goes through reshoots at one time or another, or has ADR work done, etc. etc. Doesn’t mean the movie is doomed.

Like Jonah Hex for example. The trades reports that Jonah Hex will be filming additional scenes and was given some more money, possibly to compete with the other big budget summer films. Here’s more:

“Jonah Hex” is saddling up again, this time for additional shooting.

Warner Bros. and Legendary are assembling Josh Brolin, John Malkovich, Megan Fox and Michael Fassbender for a roughly 10-day shoot in the Los Angeles area for the movie, beginning at month’s end.

Although no test screenings have taken place, the studio has decided to work on story and action during the shoots, working in 12 pages of additional script mixed in with some re-shoots.

Jimmy Hayward, who co-directed “Horton Hears a Who!” and is making his live-action debut with the movie, remains in the director’s chair. He will be joined by “I Am Legend” helmer Francis Lawrence, who was brought in last month to act as a consultant.

(“Crank” filmmakers Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, who wrote the “Hex” script, were initially on board to direct the movie back in its early stages but were dismissed because of creative differences with Brolin. Brolin told MTV News at the time he thought the script was “awful” but fell in love with the challenge of doing “the most awful movie I can find” if he could put the people he wanted into key positions.)

The movie originally was scheduled to open Aug. 6, 2010, but was then moved up to June 18–the middle of the summer tentpole season. Some insiders said the new infusion of scenes and money was designed to fix certain problems with the movie; others have said it’s being done to beef up the moderately budgeted pic so that it can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the big-budget tentpole crowd.
