Sam Rockwell is set to join the cast of Jon Favreau’s next project, Cowboys and Aliens. Both actor and director worked together on Iron Man 2 (our review here) which has had mixed reviews from the journalists. Rockwell joins the likes of Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde and Harrison Ford who have already been cast.

If you’re not familiar with the comic book, Cowboys & Aliens (and I’m one of you!) here’s the summary of what it’s all about:

In Silver City, Arizona, Apache Indians and Western settlers must lay their differences aside when an alien spaceship crash lands in their city.

Rockwell will play Doc, a bar owner who joins in the pursuit of the aliens.
