Favreau Reveals First ‘Cowboys and Aliens’ Set Photo, Talks Project

Written by on May 21, 2010 

At the Empire Gives Back charity event, Cowboys and Aliens director Jon Favreau talked with Collider after the show talking about the movie, including the picture he posted on Twitter (above), who is in fact Daniel Craig, one of the movies co-stars.

On Craig:

That’s him. We couldn’t really show too much because he didn’t want to reveal any images on Twitter but I wanted to kind of get a sense of the feel of it. He’s also somebody who plays an iconic figure that has a long tradition. So to have him playing a cowboy, I feel very good now having shot him and worked with him and hearing his thoughts. And the whole cast is great. With each person we add, the enthusiasm grows, with Rockwell and [Paul] Dano, of course Harrison. So far it’s great. The only thing that’s scary is we’re going to be shooting soon.

On Harrison Ford‘s Role:

He’s like our John Wayne. He’s our generation’s John Wayne. How do you separate him from the roles that he’s played? He’s defined the whole genre so you have to take that into consideration.

The movie, which stars Harrison Ford and co-stars Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, and Paul Dano who are all being directed by Favreau, is about, you guessed it, cowboys fighting against aliens in the wild west. Jump to the link for the full interview.

Cowboys and Aliens hits theaters next summer.

Do you think this movie will be successful with the all star cast?
