The Last Airbender joins Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens

The Last Airbender star Noah Ringer has been cast of Jon Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens.


The sci-fi Western, based on the Platinum Studios Comics graphic novel, explores what would happen if the traditional Old West enemies — cowboys and Native Americans — found the prairie attacked by aliens in mid-1800s Arizona.


Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof wrote the script for the film. He joins a cast that already includes Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford and Olivia Wilde.
