Taking a cue from Indiana Jones 4 – In his next mission, James Bond’s new villian will be an alien!

Well, sorta.

Daniel Craig officially signed up late January to be the lead in Jon Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens

He will be playing Zeke Jackson in the movie that screencrave.com describes as “…outer-space creatures who land in Arizona circa the mid-19th century intent on enslaving the local population — until a group of cowboys and Apache Indians fight back. Jackson is the revolt leader and a very talented gunman.”

The screenwriters for this movie are Hollywood’s power duo of Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman (Transformers 1 & 2, Fringe, Lost, etc.).

The role Craig is taking was cast with Robert Downey Jr. originally.  However, he left to make room for the sequel to his new franchise.

Cowboys & Aliens is slated to hit theaters July 29th, 2011.  Filming will begin this summer.

  1. You had me scared! I thought you meant James Bond himself would be fighting aliens. Moonraker was bad enough, Bond should never fight little green men.

  2. I too thought Bond was going intergalactic. I have been hearing that Bond 23 will be shocking but aliens are just too much. Always glad to hear about a new project with Daniel though. Thanks for sharing the info.

  3. […] It is announced that James Bond will next be taking on aliens […]
