Okay, now I’m starting to get new-trailer fatigue. Nonetheless, I can’t deny that this is big news. Directed by Jon Favreau, Cowboys and Aliens stars Daniel Craig as a Civil War vet named Jake Lonergan who wakes up in the desert with a strange handcuff around his wrist and no memory. It’s basically the Bourne Identity… in the old west… with aliens. The exec who first heard that pitch probably started jacking off right at the conference table (total movie exec move). It was also co-written by the writers of Iron Man, Star Trek, and Lost. FERGUS AND OSTBY AND KURTZMAN AND ORCI OH MY! (*cough*) LINDELOF! (*cough, cough*)
The concept seems kind of dumb, and as far as old west sheriffs go, Harrison Ford is no Gene Hackman. But given the talent level involved, there’s reason to be excited. Anyway, with that many writers, I like to imagine that the Iron Man guys’ only contribution was yelling “ROCKET HANDS!” every five minutes.
Sidenote: Did Daniel Craig stab that guy in the junk?
