Paul Dano To Fight Aliens With Daniel Craig
Given how things turned out for his character in There Will Be Blood, you'd think Paul Dano would be steering clear of the Old West for the time being. But it seems a residual fear of Daniel Plainview and bowling pins can be overcome by an offer to fight aliens alongside Daniel Craig. Deadline Hollywood reports that Dano has joined the cast of Cowboys & Aliens, to play another one of those titular men on horses who must battle an alien invasion in the western desert.
Keith Carradine has also signed on to play the town's sheriff, and Clancy Brown, who miraculously survived the new Nightmare on Elm Street reboot, will play another cowboy dodging laser beams. Jon Favreau starts directing the film this summer, and despite the small disappointments of Iron Man 2, you'd be crazy not to be looking forward to this guaranteed blockbuster of the future.
