Yesterday Latino Review posted a scoop saying that “Harrison Ford was about to join a huge comic book movie to be directed by a director coming off a soon to be released huge comic book movie.” This directed attention towards Jon Favreau who has just finished Iron Man 2 and is busy prepping Cowboys and Aliens for a June start.
Well earlier today Favreau took to his Twitter to put an end to the speculation, saying:
Please stop asking if Harrison Ford is in Cowboys & Aliens. Okay? He is. Please don’t tell anybody.
No word on who Ford will be playing, but i’m going to take a guess and say a cowboy. Ford will be joining Daniel Craig and Olivia Wilde in the sci-fi Western which explores what would happen if the traditional Old West enemies — cowboys and Native Americans — found the prairie attacked by aliens in mid-1800s Arizona.
The film will be shot in 3D and Universal has set a release date for July 29, 2011.
