“Sahara” writers Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Donnelly have come on board to adapt the project, which is set within Platinum’s comic book “macroverse” of more than 1,000 characters.

Created by Platinum Studios founder and chairman Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, Cowboys and Aliens is set in the Old West, where cowboys and Indians must put aside their differences to battle an alien invasion.
