"Cowboys & Aliens" Battle on the Big Screen



DreamWorks and Universal are working on a live-action version of Image Comics' 2006 graphic novel "Cowboys & Aliens."

Setting up what seems to be an ambitious film project, DreamWorks SKG and Universal Pictures have joined forces to work together in bringing up "Cowboys & Aliens", a live-version adaptation of an Image Comics' graphic novel of the same name.

Mixing Western and science fiction genres, the original is set in 1800s Arizona and focuses on the sudden arrival of a space ship in the middle of a skirmish between cowboys and Apaches. 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.

While names to star and direct the flick have not yet been revealed, it is informed that Imagine partners Brian Grazer and Ron Howard will both produce alongside Platinum Studios chairman-CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, Alex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci. Tapped to work on the script are Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby with Ervin Rustemagic and Rich Marincic co-producing.
