Harrison Ford will be in Cowboys & Aliens!

Say what??

Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau, who's prepping the upcoming sci-fi western Cowboys & Aliens, confirmed widespread rumors via Twitter that Indiana Jones himself, Harrison Ford, will be in the movie!

@Jon_Favreau: Please stop asking if Harrison Ford is in Cowboys & Aliens. Okay? He is. Please don't tell anybody.

The tweet appears to confirm a rumor first reported by our buddies at Latino Review.

Ford joins a rockin' cast that includes Tron Legacy's Olivia Wilde and James Bond's Daniel Craig in a movie written by Transformers and Star Trek writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, with Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof, based on the comic-book series.

As you may have guessed, it's about cowboys teaming up with Indians in the Old West to fight off an invasion by aliens.

That's enough to get us signed up!
