Last time we saw Paul Dano on the rough frontier, his whiny preacher character was being clubbed to death with a bowling pin in There Will Be Blood. Dano is back in period mode, this time armed, playing a cowboy who takes on extraterrestrials in Cowboys & Aliens, the Jon Favreau-directed DreamWorks pic. Dano is set, and Keith Carradine is aboard to play the town sheriff, with Clancy Brown also a cowboy. The film stars Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, Harrison Ford, Sam Rockwell and Noah Ringer. Production starts June in New Mexico for a July 29, 2011 release. At this point, a 2D shoot is planned.
