    Robert Downey Jr. is still riding high on the success of his turn as Iron Man in this summer's colossal blockbuster of the same name. The actor isn't slowing down, with his team currently negotiating for him to take a role in Cowboys & Aliens, a strange yet unique hybrid of the sci-fi and Western genres. DreamWorks/Universal will release the film, which has been in development and redrafted for over a decade now.

    Cowboys & Aliens is adapted from Fred Van Lente and Andrew Foley's graphic novel about a battle between Apache and Western settlers. The battle stops when a spaceship crashlands in Arizona, spotlighting the tug-of-war between traditional culture and advancing technology. Downey Jr. will play former Union Army man Zeke Jackson in the film should he sign on.
