Director Jon Favreau is keeping busy after the May release of Iron Man 2 with his next project, Cowboys and Aliens also starring Robert Downey, Jr. Kim Masters from The Daily Beast reports that the film will shoot in July and quite possibly in 3D, thanks to the incredible success of James Cameron‘s Avatar. This isn’t the only film though. Robin Hood and Clash of the Titans are each in talks of getting a 3D conversion. Not too mention, the highly anticipated Cabin in the Woods getting delayed an entire year for the conversion. Of course, Favreau’s next project will be a quite different, as they have 3D in mind beforehand.
Cowboys and Aliens, which is based on the 2006 graphic novel series follows “an extraterrestrial species as it lands in Arizona in the mid-1800s. The aliens plan to quash the Wild West and enslave humanity, but the cowboys and native Apache have other plans.”
Cowboys and Aliens is looking at a summer 2011 release.
What do you think about Favreau’s next project? Has Avatar proved 3D isn’t just a gimmick for you?
