Cowboys & Aliens
Cowboys & Aliens Graphic novel cover.
Latino Review recently picked up a rumor that Harrison Ford, may be returning to space, but this time without a whip or Wookiee. As the rumors swirl it appears that Ford might be part of the latest big screen comic book adaptation in Jon Favreau's Cowboys & Aliens.
And yes, it looks like this Ford rumor about his next film is 100% TRUE! As the director confirmed it himself on his verified Twitter account early today.

Jon Favreau: "Please stop asking if Harrison Ford is in Cowboys & Aliens. Okay? He is. Please don't tell anybody."

The film has had some major stars associated with it, most notable was Favreau's Iron Man star, Robert Downey, Jr., who has since moved off the project and is being replaced by Daniel Craig. Which makes this Ford's second time teaming with a certain member of Her Majesty's Secret Service!

The Cowboys & Aliens graphic novel tells the story of settlers and Native Americans waging a bloody battle for control of the land. But when the Earth is threatened by conquerors from the stars, these sworn enemies must work together to save all humanity.

The screenplay is written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, (writers of Transformers & Star Trek) and Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof. Kurtzman, Orci, Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, and Brian Grazer are producing. The release date is currently set for June 24, 2011.

Maybe it was his encounter with the Crystal Skull "interdimensional beings" that left him wanting more. Now if only we can get some Indy 5 news!
