Sam Rockwell Joins Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens

Sam Rockwell, who plays Justin Hammer in director Jon Favreau’s Iron Man 2, will be reuniting with the helmer for DreamWorks’ Cowboys & Aliens.

Rockwell is joining Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde and Harrison Ford in the film, based on the Platinum Studios graphic novel. The sci-fi Western explores what would happen if the traditional Old West enemies — cowboys and Native Americans — found the prairie attacked by aliens in mid-1800s Arizona.

Rockwell will play a bar owner named Doc who joins in the pursuit of the aliens.

Favreau will start shooting the film in June. Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof wrote the script.
