Harrison Ford Calls Cowboys and Aliens a "Real Cowboy Movie"; Says No Script Yet for Indiana Jones 5
Posted 11.09.10 by BrentJS
Attendees of the Cowboys and Aliens (C&A) movie panel at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con were fortunate enough to not only see Harrison Ford in his very first appearance at the comic and movie geek mecca—he was dragged out to the stage by security guards and was bound in shackles, a wink and nod to fans who know that he had refused previous invitations to appear at the Con—but also to see some finished footage of the movie featuring Ford and Daniel Craig. It was evident from that screening that director Jon Favreau's goal was to make the movie adaptation of the Platinum Studios graphic novel look as much like an authentic Western as possible, even after the aliens descend to raise hell, and Ford confirmed in a recent interview with Access Hollywood that C&A is a "real cowboy movie."
I had thought maybe I’d never get to make another cowboy movie. They’re so rare these days, but this was a really intriguing project and I think it’s gonna be very exciting.
It’s a real cowboy movie, looks like a cowboy movie, feels like a classic cowboy movie, and then things happen, and then it goes back to being a cowboy movie with this added element. And I think it’s the kind of film that there’s a real broad audience for. I’m very excited for it. I think it’s going to be good.
When asked for an update on Indiana Jones 5, Ford said that he would "love to do it," assuming that he, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas could all agree on a story for what will likely be Indy's last ride. Ford said that Lucas "is working on something," but admitted that he hasn't "seen anything on paper" yet.
