Daniel Craig In For COWBOYS AND ALIENS?

Maybe Hugh Jackman told Daniel Craig how great working in an American comic book movie is during their time on Broadway doing A Steady Rain, because MTV’s Splash Page blog is reporting that the British actor is in negotiations to star in the adaptation of Platinum Studios graphic novel, Cowboys and Aliens.

Craig would play Zeke Johnson, the same role Robert Downey Jr. was attached to before he withdrew from the project earlier this week.

If this goes through, it will actually be second film based on a comic book that Craig will have out in 2011. He is signed to star as Red Rackham in The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn, which was adapted from a legendary Belgian comic book series.
