Robert Downey Jr falls off the wagon for Cowboys and Aliens.

Posted by LiveFor on January 12, 2010

Robert Downey Jr. has dropped out of the sci-fi western Cowboys and Aliens according to The LA Times

He and his “Iron Man” director Jon Favreau were to team on the comic book adaptation in which aliens land in Arizona circa the mid-19th century intent on enslaving the local population – until a group of cowboys and Apache Indians fight back.

Now though while Favreau remains attached, Downey has fallen off the project and DreamWorks is seeking a a new star to play Zeke Jackson. The main reason for the departure seems to be scheduling issues. As Iron Man 2 and Due Date have both finished filming then this could possibly mean that a sequel to the excellent Sherlock Holmes could be with us sooner than we think.

Filming is scheduled to begin this year for a planned release Summer 2011.

Do you feel that this film will miss the presence of Downey Jr? Who should take his place?
