Harrison joined by Noah in Cowboys
Rising star Noah Ringer has been cast alongside Harrison Ford in Cowboys And Aliens.
The 11-year-old unknown actor M Night Shyamalan plucked from obscurity to star in his up-and-coming movie The Last Airbender has now been chosen by director Jon Favreau to star in the western, based on Scott Mitchell Rosenberg's graphic novel series, Variety revealed.
The story sees aliens invade the wild west with a colonial attitude, uniting the cowboys and Indians in the battle against the latest invaders.
The script was written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof. Kurtzman, Orci, Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, Rosenberg and Brian Grazer are producing.
The film is currently set for release next July.
