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.
Cowboys & Aliens Graphic novel cover.
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!
