VIDEO: Adam Beach discusses role in upcoming blockbuster “Cowboys and Aliens”

Next year, Adam Beach will get to share the hi-ho-silver screen with none other than Harrison Ford in the upcoming movie “Cowboys and Aliens,” described as a mix of sci-fi and western genres. It’s due to hit screens July 29, 2011.

According to, “the film takes place in 1870s Arizona, where a skirmish between cowboys and Apaches is interrupted by the crash landing of a space ship.” It’s loosely based on the original graphic novel of the same name, put out in 2007 by Platinum Studios.

And, given current battles over immigration in a certain southern US state, the fact that this is a movie about battling aliens in Arizona is an unintentional coincidence, I’m sure.

  1. Not sure what Outland is talking about, so I’ll just say that I think that Cowboys and Aliens is going to be a pretty cool movie, matter a fact I think it will be one of the best fusion movies Sci-Fi / Western made this year so why don’t we just give it a change I mean there are some really bad movies out there, I don’t think this will be one of them.
