Iron Man director Jon Favreau is looking to direct Robert Downey Jr. in an upcoming sci-fi/western, "Cowboys and Aliens." Sounds awesome.
IO9 has the story here.
I suggest genre fans add IO9 to their daily reading. It's a gawker media blog focused on all things scifi/fantasy/comic book. This actually covers a much larger range of tv and movies than you might think.
also, my two favorite sci-fi westerns- Cowboy Bebop and Firefly. I think i like Bebop a bit more. opinions? Anyone that says Brisco County, Jr. is just trying to look cool. I know that no one has seen that in 15 years.
