Interestin’ News: Daniel Craig To Play “Cowboys & Aliens”?

Collider is reporting that through sources they have heard Daniel Craig is in negotiations to play the lead role in Jon Favreau’s upcoming “Cowboys & Aliens.” On Monday, I reported that Robert Downey Jr. had run into scheduling conflicts and dropped out of the role, mentioning that they would have to work quickly to keep their planned summer 2011 release.

Now it seems that they have done exactly that, and are trying to get Craig.

This would be a nice role for Craig and team him up with Favreau, one of the hottest directors going, for the first time. I hope Universal can get him on board, as the basic premise of cowboys and indians uniting after an alien mothership lands on Earth sound like fantastic fun. Throw in writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (“Star Trek”) along with Damon Lindelof (ABC’s LOST), and the fun factor is sky high.
