Paramount has kindly sent over a behind the scenes video from the forthcoming Cowboys & Aliens.
Based on a 2006 graphic novel created by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg and written by Fred Van Lente and Andrew Foley, and with art by Luciano Lima, the film is set to star Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig and Olivia Wilde as the folks in the old west who witness an alien spacecraft impacting the Earth.
The featurette has interviews with producers Steven Spielberg and Ron Howard, writers/producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman and of course, director John Favreau. It also has a stack of new footage from the film, along with behind the scenes pieces featuring Craig, Ford and Wilde.
We can’t help but getting excited by this one. It doesn’t get much better than Indiana Jones/Han Solo, James Bond and the ‘babe’ from TRON: Legacy going up against some aliens. The director of Iron Man helps too. Amidst a plethora of comic book adaptations, Cowboys & Aliens stands out as being one of the easiest to please with its mixture of old school action and sci-fi. Let’s just hope nothing goes terribly wrong between now and August.
Cowboys and Aliens will be released in Australia on 18 August 2011 by Paramount.
