Production is moving ahead on Daniel Craig’s sci-fi western adventure Cowboys and Aliens.
According to the New Mexico Business Weekly, the Dreamworks project will shoot in the US state from mid-June through mid-August and will employ about 150 New Mexico cast and crew members.
The project, which is based off of a 2006 graphic novel, focuses on a group of Apache Indians and Western settlers who set aside their differences when an alien spaceship crash-lands in their city. The film is due to hit theatres in summer 2011.
Co-starring alongside Craig are Harrison Ford and Sam Rockwell. Iron Man‘s Jon Favreau will direct from a script by Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof, while producers include Stephen Spielberg, Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.
