The Last Airbender Fights Cowboys and Aliens


Last we heard about Cowboys & Aliens Harrison Ford was all set to join Daniel Craig and Olivia Wilde. Today comes word from Variety that Noah Ringer (The Last Airbender) will be on board with the all star cast. No idea what role he will play but since he is a kid probably nothing major.

The film is based on a graphic novel written by Fred Van Lente and Andrew Foley from an original idea by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg. The story takes place during a conflict between some Apache and Western settlers. But then from out of the sky a spaceship crash lands. The two rivals must put aside their differences in order to drive the Aliens back.

This film has been in development for quite some time with just about every major player having their hand at the script. But it wasn't until "Iron Man" and "Children of Men" writers Hawk Ostby and Mark Fergus put their touch on it did everything line up. Honestly this sounds a little bit like Wild Wild West meets Men In Black but we'll see how things shape up.
