Just when we though the selection of graphic novels was diminishing, DreamWorks and Universal Pictures have teamed up, collected their creativity, and have decided that Cowboys & Aliens would look better on film.

Universal, DreamWorks Team to Adapt Cowboys & Aliens

Having two big-hitting studios is a start, but having Imagine partners Brian Grazer and Ron Howard to produce just adds so much wow factor. Want some more talent? Well, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have jumped onboard too.

Set in 1800s Arizona, Cowboys & Aliens tells of a skirmish between cowboys and Apaches that is interrupted by the crash landing of a space ship. The alien commander plans to tame the Old West and enslave everyone, but the cowboys and Native Americans turn their six-guns against the alien invaders.

Scribes Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby have been hired to adapt the graphic novel into a screenplay.

Though the idea sounds interesting, we have to make sure we don't get another Wild Wild West.

Kurtzman and Orci recently scripted Transformers while Fergus and Ostby were last seen working on Children of Men and Iron Man.

Stay tuned for updates.
