Josh Brolin discusses what went wrong with Jonah Hex

In issue 215 of Total Film magazine , Josh Brolin exclusively reveals how he really feels about that 2010 Jonah Hex (opens in new tab) movie – and it's not good.

Inside the issue - which is available for just £1.99 on your iPad (opens in new tab) - Brolin talks about just what went wrong with the film, holding director Jimmy Hayward partly to blame.

"I think it deserved that bashing for reasons that those critics will never know," the actor says. "We were almost ready to drop [ the film] when this kid [ Hayward ] came up.

"He was an interesting young guy full of energy and he was obsessed with Jonah Hex . I thought, 'This is either a really bad decision or a brilliant decision.'

"Really bad... If I'm ever really rich, I'll do that movie again. Seriously."
