Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Cowboys and Aliens and Daniel Craig? Print E-mail

It's only been hours since Downey Jr dropped out, but DreamWorks and Jon Favreau are already on the lookout for a new gun-toting hero. And it might just be Daniel Craig.

Collider have revealed that Daniel Craig is working out a deal with the director to star as lead gunslinger in Cowboys and Aliens - this was then confirmed by Variety, too, so there's some substance to it. Yes, Daniel Craig may well be Zeke Jackson, enemy of the Apaches turned defender of the planet when an alien spaceship crashes into his hometown.

If the deal does go ahead, it pretty much rules out Nathan Fillion for the part - a shame, given his suitability for the part. But with Fillion working on James Gunn's Super, maybe he's too busy to shoot some sci-fi Western action. And let's face it, after Quentin Tarantino, who would you like to see work with James Bond? Jon Favreau wouldn't be a bad choice at all.
