As reported on TheRaider.net:
Harrison has been signed to star in a big-screen adaptation of the Cowboys & Aliens graphic novel! It will also star Daniel Craig and be directed by Iron Man’s John Favreau, who confirmed the news on his twitter page yesterday by saying : Please stop asking if Harrison Ford is in Cowboys & Aliens. Okay? He is. Please don’t tell anybody.
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.
