"Cowboys & Aliens" Graphic Novel to Become a Movie

by | June 22, 2007 | Comments

Although the idea of a sci-fi western is nothing new, I’m down for any movie that deals with cowboys AND aliens — let alone one that puts both of ’em in the title.

According to Variety, Universal and DreamWorks will work together to bring Scott Mitchell Rosenberg’s "Cowboys & Aliens" to the big screen. The writing team of Hawk Ostby and Mark Fergus will be on adaptation duty. (Their other films include "First Snow," "Children of Men," and the upcoming "Iron Man.")

As this is only one of a few dozen graphic novels I really ought to read, we’ll rely on our source for a plot synopsis:

"Set in 1800s Arizona, a skirmish between cowboys and Apaches is interrupted by the crash landing of a space ship. The alien commander plans to tame the Old West and enslave everyone, but the cowboys and Native Americans turn their six-guns against the alien invaders."

So let me get this straight: It’s going to have cowboys … AND aliens?
