Favreau & Co. Start on ‘Cowboys & Aliens’

|

Sources have reported that the Cowboys & Aliens project has started.  Slash Film last stated that the crew would start sometime in July, but it looks like they’re getting a head start.

The graphic novel mixes Western and science fiction genres. Set in 1800s Arizona, a skirmish between cowboys and Apaches is interrupted by the crash landing of a space ship. The alien commander plans to tame the Old West and enslave everyone, but the cowboys and Native Americans turn their six-guns against the alien invaders.
