Favreau saddles up with Downey for ‘Cowboys & Aliens’

Cowboys and Aliens graphic novel coverAccording to the Hollywood Reporter, Iron Man director Jon Favreau has signed on to direct Robert Downey Jr. in Cowboys & Aliens.

The Wild West E.T. tale, based on a series of graphic novels set in 19th century Arizona, is being penned by Star Trek reboot writers Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman, plus Lost scribe Damon Lindelof.

You can read the entire first issue of the comic here at Drunk Duck, a free webcomic hosting service.

You can also blame this for any delays in other Favreau-Downey projects, like Iron Man 3 and The Avengers. But if C&A turns out to be as much fun as it appears, that will be a fair trade indeed.
