It was recently speculated that Harrison Ford would be joining the cast of Jon Favreau's next film Cowboys & Aliens. Today Favreau confirmed that Ford has indeed been cast in the film!
Here is what he tweeted:
@Jon_Favreau: Please stop asking if Harrison Ford is in Cowboys & Aliens. Okay? He is. Please don’t tell anybody.
The film is based on the graphic novel by Fred Van Lente and Andrew Foley, which focuses on outer-space creatures who land in Arizona circa the mid-19th century intent on enslaving the local population, until a group of cowboys and Apache Indians fight back. The main character Zeke Jackson leads the anti-alien revolt in the story.
The project is being developed by DreamWorks will star Daniel Craig and Olivia Wilde. Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Linelof wrote the script.
I think it's cool that Ford will be in the movie, I hope he's got a good role, the guy will make a great old cowboy.
What do you think about Ford involvement with the project?
