In the wake of Robert Downey Jr.'s departure from COWBOYS AND ALIENS, rumors flew as to who would replace him in the graphic novel adaptation. Chase told us a couple of weeks back about the supposed big star rumored to assume the lead role of Zeke Jackson - Daniel Craig. It's now confirmed that Craig is officially signed on for the role.

The film has been scripted by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (the scribes behind STAR TREK and both TRANSFORMERS) from Fred Van Lente and Andrew Foley's graphic novel, and will be directed by Jon Favreau. The film has franchise potential, assuring Craig a place in the big star pantheon of mutli-franchisees, while we wait for more Bond. COWBOYS AND ALIENS is just what you think it is - Old West cowboys battle aliens. I look forward to seeing Craig on a horse.
